Additional Information about Keratoacanthoma and Prognosis

Keratoacanthoma (KA) is a special lesion, a pseudocancer, occurring as an isolated nodule, usually on the face, and mimicking squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Unique features are its rapid growth rate, much faster than that of an SCC, and also its spontaneous remission over a period of several months.
