Abstract: Study of palmo-plantar keratoderma in eighty-two cases showed that twenty different diseases, both hereditary and acquired were responsible for palmoplantar keratoderma. Maximum number of cases were of hereditary variety of palmoplantar keratoderma (Unna-Thost syndrome) (28.05%). Whereas psoriasis was the leading cause among the acquired conditions (17.07%). Two histopathological types of Unna-Thost syndrome and their correlation with clinical features are reported.

Abstract: Palmoplantar keratoderma is a heterogeneous group of hereditary and acquired disorders characterized by abnormal thickening of palms and soles. Hypothyroidism is an unusual cause of palmoplantar keratoderma, rarely reported in the literature. We report a case of a 43-year-old woman presented with a 3-month history of a diffuse palmoplantar hyperkeratosis unresponsive to topical keratolytics and corticosteroids. Her past medical and family histories were unremarkable. She complained of recent asthenia, mood changes and constipation. Laboratory evaluation revealed an autoimmune thyroiditis with hypothyroidism. Other causes of acquired palmoplantar keratoderma were excluded. After hormonal replacement therapy institution, a gradual improvement of skin condition was observed. The diagnosis of underlying causes for acquired palmoplantar keratoderma can be a difficult task; however its recognition is essential for successful treatment results. Although a very rare association, hypothyroidism must be suspected in patients with acquired palmoplantar keratoderma, particularly when it occurs in association with systemic symptoms.

Abstract: Describimos un paciente de 45 a os de sexo masculino, con hiperqueratosis palmoplantar. Simultáneamente se diagnosticó hipotiroidismo primario de origen autoinmune. Al realizar tratamiento sustitutivo con levotiroxina, el cuadro dermatológico se resolvió en el transcurso de siete meses. La queratodermia palmoplantar adquirida asociada a hipotiroidismo es una condición reversible. A pesar de ser una asociación infrecuente, debe ser considerada en el diagnóstico diferencial. We report the case of a 45 year-old male with palmoplantar hyperkeratosis. He had chronic thyroiditis with severe hypothyroidism. Skin lesions improved upon thyroid hormone replacement. Complete resolution of palmoplantar keratoderma was achieved after 7 months of therapy. The association of acquired palmoplantar keratoderma with hypothyroidism even though extremely unusual, should be considered in the differential diagnosis. It is a reversible condition.

Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology , 2005,
Abstract: Various paraneoplastic dermatoses may be seen in association with underlying visceral, especially gastrointestinal, malignancy. Florid cutaneous papillomatosis describes the sudden appearance of multiple acuminate keratotic papules that morphologically resemble viral warts. It may be seen in association with acanthosis nigricans and/or the sign of Leser Trιlat. We report a 35-year-old male with extensive seborrhoeic keratoses and florid cutaneous papillomatosis. Unusually marked verrucous changes caused disfigurement of the hands and feet. The patient also reported dyspepsia, abdominal distention and weight loss 6 months prior to the development of cutaneous lesions. Gastroscopy revealed a large growth in the stomach. Histopathology of the tumor showed features of adenocarcinoma.

In spite of the long duration of this cutaneous marker of internal malignancy, the patient was completely asymptamatic and extensive investigations revealed the presence of widespread metastasis of mucin secreting signet cell adenocarcinoma from an unknown primary site. In addition the patient also had acquired hypertrichosis lanuginose and florid cutaneous papillomatosis which are also markers of internal malignancy.
