Eruptive disseminated porokeratosis: A rare variant and therapeutic intervention



Porokeratosis is a group of disorders with distinct clinical feature of hyperkeratotic papules or plaques surrounded by an elevated, thread-like border, as well as pathological feature of cornoid lamella. Several variants of porokeratosis have been recognized, most of which follow a chronic and progressive disease course. However, there exists a rare variant characterized by a relatively rapid evolving and disseminated clinical course. The term “eruptive disseminated porokeratosis (EDP)” was proposed in the literature to describe this atypical form of porokeratosis.[1]
