Los centros médicos cerrarán por vacaciones desde el 20 de Diciembre hasta el 17 de Enero. Rogamos a los pacientes sacar turnos en fechas distintas a las mencionadas.

In the case of shifts for plastic surgery, solicitamos que saquen turno con al menos 15 días de antelación al 20 de Diciembre, dado que en algunos casos se requiere una consulta post-operatorio.

The cutaneous horn is defined as a tumor lesion with great hyperkeratosis. It can be associated with benign (actinic keratosis) and malignant (squamous cell carcinoma) lesions. Cutaneous horns usually appear in exposed areas.

Several lesions can form the base of the cutaneous horn, including squamous cell carcinomas, actinic keratoses, keratoacanthomas, Bowen's disease, seborrheic keratoses, basal cell carcinomas, hemangiomas, micaceous pseudopapillomatous balanitis, Kaposi's sarcoma, sebaceous adenoma, and Paget's disease of Paget's disease. mom, etc.


Treatment consists of complete excision of the lesion, deep at the base to avoid recurrences.
