On the basis of a study of 54 specimens each of large-cell acanthoma, solar lentigo, reticulated seborrheic keratosis, and lichen planus-like keratosis, it is concluded that clinically, histopathoiogically, and biologically, large-cell acanthoma is a variant of solar lentigo, and solar lentigo (including the large-cell variant) is a stage in the evolution of reticulated seborrheic keratosis and of lichen planus like keratosis.
