The acantholytic acanthoma is a newly recognized benign tumor of epidermal keratinocytes in which acantholysis is the most predominant feature. Diagnosis is usually made by histologic examination as this tumor presents no typical clinical aspects. We herein report 2 cases of acantholytic acanthoma which came to our attention and which may be added to the very few cases that have been described in the literature.
