Molluscum Contagiosum

 

 

 




 

CLINICAL FEATURES

Individual lesions of molluscum contagiosum are discrete, smooth, pearly or flesh-coloured, dome-shaped papules and are often confined to the genital area. Each papule may have a mildly erythematous base and a central punctum beneath which lies a white curd like core.

In patients with extensive facial lesions, HIV screening should be considered. In immunocompromised patients, lesions may become large, exuberant, and unsightly and secondary infection may be a problem. In immunocompromised patients, cutaneous lesions of infections such as histoplasmosis, penicilliosis or cryptococcosis can also resemble molluscum
