    Seborrheic keratosis is the most common slow-growing, benign epithelial tumour, usually appearing on sun-exposed areas. Treatment modalities for seborrheic keratosis may be uncomfortable and/or time-consuming. We present a case series of 12 patients with solitary seborrheic keratosis localized on the face treated with 0.005% calcipotriol ointment. The treatment lasted 3-8 months and resulted in complete regression of the lesions. Remission (follow-up period) lasted from 6 to 10 years. We conclude that topical calcipotriol may be a useful treatment option for seborrheic keratosis. © 2023 The Australasian College of Dermatologists.
