Thadeus Joseph,Mohan Thappa Devinder,Ratnakar Chaganti

Abstract: Cutaneous horns are rare horny excrescences which occur in various dermatoses. We report a girl with prurigo nodularis who developed a horn on one of the nodules. This unique association has not been reported so far.
Cutaneous Horn
Siddharth P. Dubhashi, Vivek D. Kulkarni, Adil Suleman, Ishant Rege, Harsh Kumar
Open Access Library Journal (OALib Journal) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/oalib.1100995
Abstract: A cutaneous horn (corn cutaneum) is a dense, hyperkeratotic conical projection of skin arising from an unusual cohesiveness of keratinized material. Cutaneous horns most frequently occur in sites that are exposed to actinic radiation or burns. Forearm, cartilaginous portion of the ear, legs, and hands may also be affected. Cutaneous horns can occur in sun protected areas. Histologic confirmation is necessary to rule out malignant changes. No clinical features reliably distinguish between benign and malignant lesions. This is a case report of a cutaneous horn over inguinal region.
Giant cutaneous horn  [cached]
Kumaresan M,Kumar Pramod,Pai Manohar
Indian Journal of Dermatology , 2008,
Abstract: A 53-year-old male presented with a giant cutaneous horn over the left leg. Cutaneous horn was excised and primary closure of the defect was done under spinal anesthesia. Histopathology showed underlying seborrheic keratosis. Cutaneous horn has been noticed on top of many clinical conditions of diverse etiology, such as actinic keratoses, wart, molluscum contagiosum, seborrheic keratoses, keratoacanthoma, basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma. We report a patient with giant cutaneous horn on the leg successfully treated by excision and wound closure.

Cutaneous horn overlying lichen planus
Ramam M,Singh O,Singh M
Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology , 1991,
Abstract: A 40 year old woman developed a cutaneous horn following the excision of a lesion of lichen planus on the left lower leg. Biopsy confirmed the presence of lichen planus at the base of the horn. Excision of the horn was curative.
Cutaneous Horn-Related Kaposi's Sarcoma: A Case Report
Nilufer Onak Kandemir,Banu Dogan Gun,Figen Barut,Nilgun Solak Tekin,Sukru Oguz Ozdamar
Case Reports in Medicine , 2010, DOI: 10.1155/2010/825949
Abstract: Cutaneous horn is characterized by the accumulation of abnormal keratinized material and may occur in association with a variety of benign, premalignant, and malignant cutaneous lesions. Cutaneous horn occurs very rarely in association with soft-tissue neoplasias. A cutaneous horn located on the toe was completely removed by excision in a 78-year-old male patient. Macroscopic examination revealed a hemorrhagic nodular lesion, 0.5 cm in diameter, located on the dermis underlying the cutaneous horn with a height of 1 cm. Histopathological examination revealed a neoplastic lesion consisting of fusiform cells and extravasated erythrocytes underlying the compact keratin mass. The immunohistochemical analysis showed immunoexpression of endothelial markers and HHV8 in fusiform cells. The case was evaluated as “cutaneous horn developed in a nodular stage Kaposi's sarcoma.” Our case is the second case of cutaneous horn related to Kaposi's sarcoma reported in the English literature and is presented in this case report with its clinical and histopathological features.

Pseudoepitheliomatous, keratotic, and micaceous balanitis presenting as cutaneous horn in an adult male
Pai Varadraj,Hanumanthayya K,Naveen K,Rao Ravikala
Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology , 2010,
Abstract: Pseudoepitheliomatous, keratotic, and micaceous balanitis is an extremely rare condition occurring over the glans in elderly characterized by silvery white plaque with mica-like crust, which can undergo malignant transformation. Herein we present a case of pseudoepitheliomatous, keratotic, and micaceous balanitis occurring in an adult male presenting as a cutaneous horn.

Giant cutaneous horn in an African woman: a case report
Peter M Nthumba
Journal of Medical Case Reports , 2007, DOI: 10.1186/1752-1947-1-170
Abstract: A young female presented with a large 'horn' of five-year duration, arising from a burn scar. Excision and scalp reconstruction were performed. Histology was reported as verrucoid epidermal hyperplasia with cutaneous horn.This may be the first documentation of this lesion in a black African. Although likely rare, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of dermatologic lesions. Up to 40% of cutaneous horns occur as part of a premalignant or malignant lesion, and surgical extirpation with histological examination is thus more important than the curiosity surrounding these lesions.A cutaneous horn, or cornu cutaneum, is a dense hyperkeratotic conical projection of skin arising from an unusual cohesiveness of keratinized material. It resembles an animal horn grossly, but lacks a bony core, histologically consisting of concentric layers of cornified epithelial cells. Most have a yellow-white color, and may be straight or curved and twisted, and vary from a few millimeters to several centimeters in length [1,2]. Cutaneous horns may arise from any part of the body, and only 30% arise from the face and scalp. They are thought to result from underlying benign, premalignant or malignant pathology, in 61.1%, 23.2% and 15.7% of cases respectively [3].A 28 year old female patient presented to AIC Kijabe Hospital (KH) with a large 'horn' growing from her right parietal region. She had suffered a thermal burn of this same area at the age of 5 years. She had successfully concealed the scalp burn scar using a wig all her life (Figure 1), until three years prior to presentation, when she noticed a mass developing on the scar. The mass gradually increased in size, making it more and more difficult to conceal. It also began bleeding spontaneously, but with no associated pain.On examination, she had a large 15 cm × 15 cm area of alopecia over the right temporo-parietal region of her scalp. A golden-yellow colored horn with a base diameter of 3 cm and a height of 6 cm sat i
