We describe a case of pseudomelanoma after Solcoderm treatment. Pseudomelanoma is a pathological entity describing the histological findings in cases of recurrences of a partially excised melanocytic nevus, resembling melanoma. Solcoderm is an aqueous solution containing organic and inorganic acids that destroys a lesion by tissue mummification. It has been used for the treatment of benign skin lesions. Appearance of pseudomelanoma after Solcoderm treatment stressed the controversy of the use of Solcoderm in pigmentary lesions, and that surgical removal is preferred in cases of pigmented nevi.
