Clear cell acanthoma (CCA) is an asymptomatic benign lesion of unknown origin that typically appears as a brownish, dome-shaped papule on the leg. It has an unusual clinical feature in that it appears as chronic eczema, Bowen disease, or Paget disease on the areola. Its histopathologic findings are well-demarcated psoriasiform acanthosis with pale keratinocytes (clear cells) that are rich in intracellular glycogen, which stain positively with Periodic acid-Shiff. We report herein on a young female patient with CCA on the areolar areas.
