epidermodysplasia verrucifor´mis the widespread and persistent (sometimes lasting decades) dissemination of verruca plana associated with a tendency to malignant degeneration. It typically begins in early childhood with the development of flat-topped papules that increase in number and coalesce to form large plaques, especially on the knees, elbows, and trunk. Familial occurrence and mental retardation are often associated with the disorder.
