Clinic and Polyclinic for Dermatology, University of Regensburg, Germany.


Seborrheic keratosis is one of the most common skin tumors. Because this tumor is benign, treatment is not mandatory. However, the lesions are often removed especially for cosmetic reasons.

The current knowledge about seborrheic keratosis with respect to epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and therapy is summarized.
