Abstract

Molluscum contagiosum is a common, contagious viral skin disease that often affects children and adolescents. Involvement of the areola and nipple are rarely reported. Herein we report two young women with molluscum contagiosum on the areola-nipple complex and we discuss the dermoscopic features of the lesions at this unusual site.
