A stucco keratosis is a common benign skin condition characterized by a lesion with a dull or lackluster surface, and with church-spire-like projections of epidermal cells around collagen seen histologically. Stucco keratoses are often light brown to off-white, and are no larger than a few millimeters in diameter. They are often found on the distal tibia, ankle, and foot.
Other names for a stucco keratosis are "digitate seborrheic keratosis," "dyperkeratotic seborrheic keratosis," "deratosis alba," "serrated seborrheic keratosis," and "verrucous seborrheic keratosis".
