Cutaneous Horn

The cutaneous horn (Latin horn, ” horn “, ” horny skin ” or ” outgrowth “)

The cutaneous horn is defined as a tumor lesion with great hyperkeratosis. It may be associated with benign lesions (actinic keratoses) and malignant (squamous cell carcinoma).

Cutaneous horns usually appear on exposed areas.

There are several injuries that can form the basis of the cutaneous horn, including squamous cell carcinoma, actinic keratosis, keratoacanthomas, Bowen’s disease, seborrheic keratoses, basal cell carcinomas, hemangiomas, Kaposi’s sarcoma.

Treatment consists of complete resection of the lesion, with base depth to prevent recurrences.
