Abstract

Infantile perianal pyramidal protrusion is an important, relatively newly recognized condition, which is thought to be under-reported in the pediatric literature. Previous reports refer to these lesions as skin tags or skin folds. More recently, the name infantile perianal pyramidal protrusion has been suggested, based on the characteristic presentation of the lesion in prepubertal children, especially girls. Recognition of these lesions has many implications regarding proper diagnosis and management. They may easily be mistaken for condyloma accuminata or as a sign of trauma, leading to an investigation of sexual abuse. This situation may be avoided with awareness of this entity in combination with thorough history taking and a classic presentation. We present a classic presentation of infantile perianal pyramidal protrusion and further discuss this condition.
