Abstract

This study failed to provide any support for the hypothesis that IFK is an old Verruca vulgaris with involvement of hair follicles. The staining reaction for the papillomarivus common antigen was positive in 87% of Verrucae vulgares. None of the 20 examples of IFK gave positive reaction. We continue to believe that IFK is a distinct neoplasm of the pilar apparatus.
