Histology of a nevus comedonicus showed aggregates of dilated follicular cysts reminiscent of dilated pore of Winer. This finding has not been previously reported. We propose the term dilated pore nevus for this lesion, which we conceive to be a histologic variant of nevus comedonicus, similar to porokeratotic eccrine ostial and dermal duct nevus.
