Clinical cases

Fordyce Disease is a very common condition but with long asymptomatic evolution that can cause psychological and aesthetic discomfort. Clinical symptomatology is easily recognizable, and the differential diagnosis is made with few ailments, mainly with sebaceous adenomas and genital warts in the case of genital localisation.
Pathogenic mechanism leading to the occurrence of these ectopic sebaceous glands is not known but it is important to note that these sebaceous glands are not associated with hair follicles. The evolution of the disease is benign and the treatment, when is required is surgical ablation.
