Chorng-Guang Chen, Han-Nan Liu, Chu-Kwan Wong
Dermatol Sinica 15: 41-45, 1997

Palisaded encapsulated neuroma of the skin was first described by Reed et al in 1972. However, encapsulation and nuclear palisading were not always prominent. Therefore, Fletcher recoined the name of "solitary circumscribed neuroma" in 1989. We herein report a typical case of solitary circumscribed neuroma that presented with a asymptomatic, erythematous papule about 3mm in diameter over forehead for 10 years. After total excision, no recurrence has been noted so far.
