A sporadic case of unilateral
acrokeratoelastoidosis in Saudi Arabia: a case report
Acrokeratoelastoidosis is a rare
condition characterized by bilateral multiple hyperkeratotic papules on the
palms, soles, and dorsum of the hands and feet. To the best of our knowledge,
only around 40 cases of acrokeratoelastoidosis have been reported worldwide,
which are mostly familial.
We report the first case from
Saudi Arabia in a 5-year-old Saudi girl of Arabian origin, who presented
symptoms of acrokeratoelastoidosis with unilateral sporadic keratosis on her
left hand and left foot. We also review the clinical and histopathologic
features, etiology, differential diagnosis and its treatment.
Given the rarity of
acrokeratoelastoidosis, little is known about the disease. Further studies are
required to understand the pathogenesis of the disease for better treatment
options. Additional case reports of acrokeratoelastoidosis will help in
recognizing risk factors, patient characteristics, environmental influences and
possibly new etiological factors.
