Abstract: Porokeratosis of Mibelli was diagnosed in a 9‐year‐old Afro‐American girl. The lesion was rather large (4.1 x 2.0 cm) and had developed rapidly over the course of six months. Considering the potential for malignant transformation without neglecting the importance of cosmesis, carbon dioxide laser vaporization with curettage was chosen to ablate the lesion. Within two months the entire treated area revealed recurrent porokeratosis. Due to the aggressive nature of this lesion, complete excision was performed.
