Özet

Terra firma-forme dermatosis (TFFD), which is characterized by dirt like brown hyperpigmented papillomatous plaques, is an asymptomatic keratinization disorder of an unknown etiology. Development of lesions is not associated with inadequate hygiene. The most important feature of the disease is that the lesions cannot be removed by washing with soap and water, while they can only be removed by rubbing with 70% isopropyl alcohol or ethyl alcohol. Here, we present a child with terra firma-forme dermatosis who has been previously diagnosed with epidermal nevus.
