Abstract

The terminology and classification of keratoacanthoma (KA) and other types of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) with crateriform architecture have not been clarified. The study evaluated the clinicopathological features of 41 nodular (exo-endophytic) SCC lesions with a central keratin-filled crater, including KA (well-developed stage). The lesions were histopathologically classified into six categories: (i) KA (well-developed stage) (27 lesions); (ii) KA-like SCC (three lesions); (iii) KA with malignant transformation (three lesions); (iv) infundibular SCC (crateriform) (four lesions); (v) crateriform SCC arisen from actinic keratosis (three lesions); and (vi) crateriform Bowen's disease (one lesion). The true characteristics of KA-like SCC remain unresolved, but there are three possibilities, namely, that it is one step in the evolution of KA, it is a borderline lesion between KA and invasive SCC, or it is one form of "KA with malignant transformation". KA, KA-like SCC, KA with malignant transformation and infundibular SCC (crater form) are considered to be hair follicle-related neoplasms. In contrast, crateriform SCC arisen from actinic keratosis and crateriform Bowen's disease are SCC, which are not related either to the hair fo...Continue Reading
