Abstract

Acrokeratoelastoidosis (AKE) is a rare papular palmoplantar keratosis characterized by small, firm, yellow papules distributed on the margins of the hands and feet. Both autosomal dominant and sporadic forms of the disease have been reported. Histologic findings consist of hyperkeratosis, acanthosis and marked decrease in dermal elastic fibers. No curative treatment of AKE has been reported to date. In this article, we present a sporadic case of a 15-year-old female patient diagnosed with AKE and discuss the differential diagnosis.
