Confluent and reticulated papillomatosis: response to tazarotene.

Author information

  • 1Section of Dermatology, Medical College of Georgia, Augusta, 30912, USA.


Confluent and reticulated papillomatosis of Gougerot and Carteaud is an uncommon dermatosis of unclear cause that can be recalcitrant to therapy. We report the case of an 11-year-old black girl with the eruption in whom it completely cleared using tazarotene gel. The treatment was well-tolerated and we suggest considering topical tazarotene as an alternative to systemic retinoid therapy.
