Abstract

Confluent and reticulated papillomatosis, also known as Gougerot-Carteaud Syndrome, is a rare chronic disease typically affecting young adults. Of unknown etiology, the condition is characterised by oval grayish-brown or erythematous papules that coalesce to form a reticular pattern, usually on the trunk, especially in the intermammary or interscapular region and on the neck. Diagnosis is primarily clinical, based on the appearance of the lesions, the areas affected, and the response to treatment with minocycline. We report 20 cases of patients with histologically confirmed confluent and reticulated papillomatosis who presented linear pseudo-striae, a little known diagnostic sign.

Resumen

La papilomatosis confluente y reticulada, o síndrome de Gougerot y Carteaud, es una enfermedad infrecuente, crónica, de etiología desconocida, que se presenta habitualmente en adultos jóvenes y se caracteriza por placas pardo-eritematosas ovales, que confluyen en un patrón reticulado y afectan el tronco, particularmente la región intermamaria e interescapular, y el cuello. Su diagnóstico es fundamentalmente clínico, se basa en la localización y el aspecto de las lesiones, así como en la respuesta al tratamiento con minociclina. Presentamos 20 casos de papilomatosis confluente y reticulada, confirmados por histopatología, en quienes se identificó la presencia de pseudoestrías lineales, un hallazgo semiológico poco reconocido.
