Hereditary palmoplantar keratoderma – a focus on clinical and molecular genetic aspects
Hereditary palmoplantar keratoderma comprises a heterogenous group of genodermatoses. The clinical spectrum of palmoplantar keratoderma can range from pure skin thickening, restricted to palmoplantar skin to complex conditions with dental anomalies, eye symptoms, deafness, cardiac disease and cancer. The classification of hereditary palmoplantar keratoderma has been complicated. In recent years the molecular genetic background has been clarified for an increasing number of palmoplantar keratodermas, which makes it possible to make a more accurate diagnosis.
