CARNEIRO, Fernando Augusto Ribeiro; DIAS, Laiane Moraes  and  SILVA, Alex Cézar Massoud Salame da. Confluent and reticulate papillomatosis of Gougerot-Carteaud: Case Report. Rev. Para. Med. [online]. 2008, vol.22, n.1, pp.63-68. ISSN 0101-5907.

OBJECTIVE: report a case of confluent and reticulate papillomatosis of Gougerot-Carteaud, a rare cutaneous disorder characterized by confluent, flat, brown papules. REPORT OF THE CASE: a 28 year-old man presented flat brown papules on the intermammary region, which coalesced to form diffuse large plaques spread out the breast, neck and back regions. The diagnosis was made from clinical and histological findings. The pacient was treated with oral azythromycin. Final considerations: the lesions improved after six courses of treatment, being azythromycin an effective alternative treatment to this dermatosis.
