The prevalence of accentuated palmoplantar markings and keratosis pilaris in atopic dermatitis autosomal dominant ichthyosis and control dermatological patients


, : The prevalence of accentuated palmoplantar markings and keratosis pilaris in atopic dermatitis autosomal dominant ichthyosis and control dermatological patients. British Journal of Dermatology 112(6): 679-686

The prevalence of keratosis pilaris and accentuated palmoplantar marking was evaluated in 61 patients with atopic dermatitis, 35 patients with dominant ichthyosis vulgaris and 247 other dermatological cases taken as controls. These features apparently are of no diagnostic significance for atopic dermatitis and apparently are significantly more frequent in patients with ichthyosis vulgaris without associated eczema than in those with atopic dermatitis. Consequently, they should be considered as part of the phenotype of ichthyosis vulgaris rather than attributed to a concomitant atopic dermatitis as suggested by some. These findings should be taken into account when evaluating atopic dermatitis or ichthyosis. To assess the frequency of scaling under winter weather conditions, 155 control subjects were also examined for evidence of visible desquamation and 25.8% showed slight but definite scaling.
