Answer

Answer

A study by Kim et al examined diagnostic differences between verruca plana (VP) and VP-like seborrheic keratosis, finding that the latter has a more scattered distribution than VP and more commonly exhibits a brainlike dermoscopic appearance. The investigators, whose report involved a total of 33 patients, recommended that the two conditions can be distinguished via a diagnostic algorithm employing the Koebner phenomenon, dermoscopic findings, biopsy, and lesion distribution.
