Neglecta Dermatosis (ND) is an acquired, long-standing, non symptomatic dermatosis consists of dark verrucous plaques of dirt simulating verrucous nevi. The disease results from the accumulation of sebum, sweat, corneocytes and bacteria in a localized area of skin, forming a compact and adherent crust of dirt. Although it is considered to be very rare, ND should be recognized in order to put the right diagnosis along with its simple treatment, and to avoid aggressive unnecessary diagnostic and therapeutic procedure. We reported here a series of 4 cases of Syrian patients who were referred to our Dermatology Department with ND.
