Cutaneous lesions in neurofibromatosis 1: confused terminology



Cutaneous lesions in neurofibromatosis 1: confused terminology



British Journal of Dermatology 157(1): 183-184



We present a case of immunobullous disease with an impressive acquired palmoplantar keratoderma (PPK) and unique antigenicity. The palms of the patient showed hyperkeratotic ridges with a tripe pattern that decreased with the amelioration of the immunobullous condition. The histopathology of perilesional skin (blister) demonstrated eosinophilic spongiosis and suprabasal blistering as in pemphigus vulgaris.
