Palmoplantar Keratoderma is also called keratosis or Palmaris ET plantaris and refers to the thickening of the sole of the arms and feet. This condition can be divided into three types. Diffuse keratoderma affects the palms and soles; focal keratoderma mainly affects the areas of pressure; and punctate keratoderma causes tiny bumps on the soles and palms. Mostly, palmoplantar keratoderma affects the skin, and only in very rare cases does it affect the body organs. Genetics are the primary cause, however, it can also be acquired because of changes in health and the environment.
