Confluent and Reticulated Papillomatosis (CRP) is an extremely rare disease of unknown etiology, variably treated with different treatment protocols. Topical therapy with imidazoles is sometimes a useful treatment. We describe three cases treated with topical tioconazole. We treated three white female patients, 20, 11 and 7-years old, respectively, affected by CRP, with tioconazole 1% cream applied twice a day for a month. One month after the beginning of the therapy all the patients were free of lesions and the resolution was still present 1 year later. Topical therapy with tioconazole seems a safe and useful treatment for CRP.
