This contribution presents the morphologic aspects and the differential diagnosis of the main paraneoplasias, which include acanthosis nigricans, tripe palms, Leser-Trélat sign, acquired ichthyosis, acquired hypertrichosis lanuginosa, pityriasis rotunda, erythema gyratum repens, palmo-plantar keratoderma, Bazex syndrome, and dermatomyositis, hoping to contribute to the familiarity of dermatologists with the identification and early diagnosis of this group.
