This is a skin condition that refers to the thickening of the skin that can be found on the soles of the feet and the palms. It can be inherited genetically or acquired due to environmental factors. While it is known to mostly affect the feet, it can also reach other parts of the patient’s body. This condition is also quite severe when it affects the hands.
HOW IS PALMOPLANTAR KERATODERMA DIAGNOSED?
A complete dermatological examination including skin (atrophy, knuckle pads, blisters, pseudoainhum) nails, hair, and mucosa is done.
HOW IS PALMOPLANTAR KERATODERMA TREATED?
Treatment of both hereditary and non hereditary palmoplantar keratodermas is difficult. Treatment usually only results in short-term improvement and often has adverse side effects. The goal of treatment is usually to soften the thickened skin and makes it less noticeable. Treatment may include simple measures such as saltwater soaks, emollients, and paring. More aggressive treatment includes topical keratolytics, topical retinoids, systemic retinoids (acitretin), topical vitamin D ointment (calcipotriol), or surgery to remove the skin, following by skin grafting.

Research regarding the complications of Palmoplantar Keratoderma are still on and genetic and hereditary factors are yet to be established, making treatment even more difficult.
