We describe a patient with Transgrediens et progrediens palmoplantar keratoderma (Greither's disease). Ten of the 25 members of this patient's family in six consecutive generations were affected by the disorder. The pedigree was consistent with an autosomal dominant inheritance pattern, with variable penetrance. The proband's physical examination showed typical signs of Greither's disease. The most striking findings were seen in histopathologic study and consisted of round, focal areas of orthohyperkeratosis located on delled areas of the epidermis. These histopathologic features were present in both the lesions of the palms and dorsum of the hands. We review the clinical manifestations and histopathologic findings of this particular variant of palmoplantar keratoderma and the differential diagnosis.
