Psoriasiform keratosis is a rare, recently described entity, characterized by a solitary keratotic or scaly papule or plaque similar to seborrheic or actinic keratosis or other epidermal proliferations, but with the histopathological features that mimic psoriasis. The etiology and pathogenesis of psoriasiform keratosis remain unknown. Most of the reported lesions were located on the extremities. We here in report a 32-year-old man presented with a solitary asymptomatic keratotic papule on the right side of the neck. The histopathology of the excised lesion was consistent with psoriasiform keratosis.
