Clear cell fibrous papule: report of a case mimicking a balloon cell nevus.

Author information

Department of Dermatology, Taipei Medical University-Wan Fang Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan.


Clear cell fibrous papule (FP) is a rare variant of FP. We report a 39-year-old female patient who presented with a dome-shaped papule on the nose. The diagnosis of clear cell FP was made based on histological and immunohistochemical studies. Interestingly, scattered S-100 cells were admixed within the lesion, a finding hitherto not reported. The S-100 positivity may be misleading and should be cautiously interpreted.
