Giant Cutaneous Horn: A Rare Case Report and Review of Literature

Sajjad Hussain

Abstract: Giant Cutaneous horns are very rare and are often associated with superstitious awe as it resembles an animal horn. It is a keratotic mass arising from the cutis of sun exposed areas. They are asymptomatic but may present with itch, pain and oozing at the base or around the lesion. Aetiology is unknown but occurs in association with, or as a response to a wide variety of underlying benign, pre-malignant, and malignant Cutaneous disease. These horns have a high incidence of malignancy at the base and therefore require immediate clinical attention. Excision with histopathology is the initial treatment. The final pathologic diagnosis determines definitive therapy.
