Keratoacanthoma centrifugum marginatum (KCM) is a rare variant of keratoacanthoma, characterized by progressive peripheral growth with concomitant healing of the central area of the tumor. We present a patient with KCM who was treated with topical 5% 5-fluorouracil. This is the third reported case of KCM treated with this agent.
