Neuromas are a hyperplasia of axons and associated nerve sheeth cells. Cutaneous neuromas are uncommon and three kinds of true neuromas exist in the skin and mucous membranes: traumatic neuromas, multiple mucosal neuromas and solitary palisaded encapsulated neuromas. Traumatic neuromas result from the overgrowth of nerve fibers in the severed ends of peripheral nerves. These present as a solitary, skin-colored or pink firm papule or nodule at the site of a scar following local trauma. We report a case of neuroma cutis which occurred in a middle-aged woman without any history of trauma.
