Abstract

Acrokeratosis Verruciformis is a rare autosomal dominant genodermatosis. Typically, the lesions are small, verrucous, flat papules on the dorsal aspects of the hands and feet, elbows and knees. Herein, we report a sporodic case of acrokeratosis verruciformis, succesfully treated with acitretin, and review of the literatures. (Turkderm 2009; 43: 35-7)
