Warty dyskeratoma is a benign epithelial tumour, that is commonly characterised by soliter papul or nodule. Clinical findings may be similar to sebaceous hyperplasia, pyojenic granuloma, verruca vulgaris and basal cell carsinoma. In a 16 year old male patient a brown-cream colored, centrally crust formated papular lesion with a 6x5 mm diameter was detected in the umblical region. After excisional biopsy it was found to be compatible with warty dyskeratoma histapathologically. Because of its unusual localisation, we have presented the case with literature.
