Resumen

SALDUNA, María Dolores; FUX, Carolina; ALBERTINI, Ricardo  y  RUIZ LASCANO, Alejandro. Acquired palmoplantar keratoderma with hypothyroidism. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2005, vol.65, n.1, pp. 47-48. ISSN 1669-9106.

We report the case of a 45 year-old male with palmoplantar hyperkeratosis. He had chronic thyroiditis with severe hypothyroidism. Skin lesions improved upon thyroid hormone replacement. Complete resolution of palmoplantar keratoderma was achieved after 7 months of therapy. The association of acquired palmoplantar keratoderma with hypothyroidism even though extremely unusual, should be considered in the differential diagnosis. It is a reversible condition.

Palabras clave : Keratoderma; Palmoplantar hyperkeratosis; Hypothyroidism.
