A radiation keratosis occurred in a woman who wore a radioactive gold ring forty-three years ago. Clinicians should be aware that not all "warty lesions" on the hands are actinic keratosis, seborrheic keratosis, or warts. Radioactive gold rings still exist Diagnosis requires a high index of suspicion, since patients may no longer be wearing the offending ring.
