DefinitionThis section has been translated automatically.
Autosomal dominant inherited or sporadically occurring (Hussain A et al. 2017), small papular disease (palmoplantar keratosis, classification see below keratosis palmoplantaris) of the hands and feet with signs of a cornification anomaly and elastosis.
The genetic cause of the hereditary form is still unknown.
The "focal acral hyperkeratosis" (see below hyperkeratosis, focal acral) is considered to be a variant. Keratoelastoidosis marginalis (Kocsard 1965) is also a special form of punctate palmoplantar keratosis type 3.
