Eruptive keratoacanthomas(KAs) of the lower extremity is considered a severe disease because there is a rapid onset of eruptions with a high recurrence rate. Currently, there are only 40 cases reported.1 The condition most commonly affects Fitzpatrick skin type I and II adults in the fifth to seventh decades of life.2 Treatment and management can be challenging due to their chronic and recurring nature and the patient’s ability to tolerate treatment. However, treatment with the oral retinoid acitretin has been successful in the management of the condition.
