A Systematic Review on the Treatment of Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra.

J Drugs Dermatol 2021 Apr;20(4):467-472

Dermatosis papulosa nigra (DPN) is a benign skin condition that is primarily reported in skin of color patients. While prevalent, treatment options are limited and the benign course of DPNs may cause them to be overlooked by clinicians. However, large and multiple lesions in cosmetically sensitive areas may be emotionally and socially distressful to patients. Read More

All authors are with the Department of Dermatology at Wake Forest School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Dermatosis papulosa nigra (DPN) is a skin condition characterized by pigmented sessile and pedunculated papules on the body, particularly on the face and other sun-exposed areas, that can cause cosmetic disfigurement and varying degrees of distress and psychosocial concern among patients. We sought to evaluate the effect of DPN on quality of life (QoL). A 39-item questionnaire was administered to 50 African-American (AA) adults, 48 women and two men, with an average age of 51.

Treatment of dermatosis papulosa nigra using a carbon dioxide laser.

J Cosmet Dermatol 2020 Oct 28;19(10):2572-2575. Epub 2020 Jan 28.

Department of Dermatology, Graduate School of Medicine, University of Toyama, Toyama, Japan.

Background: Dermatosis papulosa nigra (DPN) is characterized by the presence of multiple, small, hyperpigmented, warty papules affecting the face, neck, and trunk that bear to histological semblance to seborrheic keratosis. Although the lesions are benign tumors, they can cause distress for cosmetic reasons.

Objective: We, herein, report the cases of three female Japanese patients (mean age, 46 years) with DPN who were treated using a carbon dioxide (CO ) laser with a computerized scanner. Read More

The color of skin: black diseases of the skin, nails, and mucosa.

Clin Dermatol 2019 Sep - Oct;37(5):447-467. Epub 2019 Aug 17.

Department of Dermatology, Temple University Lewis Katz School of Medicine, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Gradations in skin color are a consequence of differing amounts of melanin and their varying distribution. Although many darkly pigmented skin lesions are melanocytic and can be attributed to melanin content, the color of a black lesion can also be due to blood, necrotic tissue, or exogenous pigment. The source, pattern, and distribution of the color in black lesions usually offer important insight into its etiology. Read More

Dermatosis papulosa nigra: a clinically and histopathologically distinct entity.

Clin Dermatol 2017 Sep - Oct;35(5):491-496. Epub 2017 Jun 8.

Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Biology, and the Jefferson Center for International Dermatology, Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Dermatosis papulosa nigra was first described by Aldo Castellani (1874-1971) more than 90 years ago, and it has since been presumed to be a variant of seborrheic keratosis. Despite their morphologic similarities both macroscopically and microscopically, key differences have yet to be explained. These lesions also exhibit different demographics, with dermatosis papulosa nigra having a predilection for dark-skinned individuals and a female predominance. Read More

Background: Seborrheic keratosis (SK) is the most common benign epidermal tumor of the skin. Even though SK has been well characterized clinically, dermoscopically, and histopathologically, data regarding clinical dermoscopic and histopathological correlation of different types of SK are inadequate.

Aim: We carried out this study to establish any correlation between the clinical, dermoscopic, and histopathological appearance of SK and its variants. Read More

Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra and 10,600-nm CO2 laser, a good choice.

J Cosmet Laser Ther 2014 Jun 18;16(3):114-6. Epub 2013 Nov 18.

Department of Surgery and Translational Medicine, Section of Dermatology, University of Florence , Florence , Italy.

Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra (DPN) is a common skin condition observed in black people and considered a benign epithelial tumor, and more specifically, a particular topographic form of seborrheic keratosis. We treated five female patients affected by DPN with 10,600-nm CO2 laser. We propose the 10,600-nm CO2 laser as a valid therapeutic option in patients affected by DPN, since the treatment is well tolerated, causes no major side effects, and is effective and long lasting.

Postprocedural wound-healing efficacy following removal of dermatosis papulosa nigra lesions in an African American population: a comparison of a skin protectant ointment and a topical antibiotic.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2011 Mar 17;64(3 Suppl):S30-5. Epub 2011 Jan 17.

College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University, New York, USA.

Background: Removal of dermatosis papulosa nigra (DPN) lesions results in superficial cutaneous wounds that are frequently treated with topical antibiotic ointments. We hypothesize that antibiotics are not necessary for effective and safe healing of such wounds.

Objective: This study compared the wound healing efficacy and safety of the skin protectant Aquaphor Healing Ointment (AHO) (Beiersdorf Inc, Wilton, CT) and Polysporin first-aid ointment (Poly/Bac) (polymyxin B sulfate/bacitracin zinc) (Johnson & Johnson, New Brunswick, NJ) after removal of DPN lesions.

Dermatosis papulosa nigra (DPN) is a benign epithelial tumor that is common in dark-skinned people. Although the diagnosis is easily made on medical examination, DPN is characterized by a chronic and worsening course. Therefore, even if DPN is a benign disease, the lesions are unaesthetic and the therapeutic options are quite inefficient. Read More

Department of Dermatology, University of Regensburg, Regensburg, Germany.

Background: Stucco keratosis (STK) and dermatosis papulosa nigra (DPN) are referred to as variants of seborrhoeic keratosis. However, the genetic alterations involved in the pathogenesis of these benign tumours are unknown.

Objectives: Because FGFR3 and PIK3CA mutations have been reported to be involved in the pathogenesis of seborrhoeic keratosis, we analysed whether these mutations are also present in STK and DPN. Read More
