A follow-up study of clinical and genetic observations, made on patients with hereditary palmoplantar keratoderma living in the northernmost county of Sweden (Norrbotten) in 1967, was performed. Two clinical types could be distinguished, a common form with an autosomal dominant mode of inheritance, corresponding to the description of the Unna Thost variety(More)
A papular and a diffuse variety of hereditary palmoplantar keratoderma (Unna Thost) are described. It was not possible to demonstrate any histopathological differences between the two varieties. Of the patients examined 36.2% were found to have dermatophytosis in addition to hereditary palmoplantar keratoderma. The hyperkeratosis was smooth and uniform in(More)
The frequency of autosomal dominant inherited palmoplantar keratoderma (HPPK) in the northernmost county of Sweden (Norrbotten) is 0.55%. Histopathological examination of 91 biopsies from patients with the dominant form of HPPK revealed no case of epidermolytic PPK. This finding is in contrast to the results of a re-examination of descendants of the(More)
In a 29-year-old woman suffering from hereditary palmoplantar keratoderma of the Unna Thost variety, psoriasis appeared at an age of 28 years. The keratoderma on the soles was complicated with a dermatophyte infection, which made the differential diagnosis towards psoriasis difficult. Histopathologic examination of punch biopsy from the soles showed no(More)
Fourteen patients with hereditary palmoplantar keratoderma of the Unna Thost variety were included in the study. Dermatophytosis was found in 7 of the 14 patients. Six were affected with T. rubrum and one with T. mentagrophytes. The growth pattern of dermatophytes in keratin from the patients did not differ from that of normal control individuals. Keratin(More)
Two percent metronidazole and 5% benzoyl peroxide cream was evaluated in four clinical trials. It could be shown that this test cream was significantly better than 5% benzoyl peroxide jelly alone, and significantly better than a placebo cream. It was also shown that 2% metronidazole and 5% benzoyl peroxide cream was equal to systemic oxytetracycline(More)
Family and personal histories of atopy, total IgE level in serum, AB0 blood groups, trichophytin reactions, IgE RAST, IgG RAST and precipitating antibodies were investigated in patients with hereditary palmo-plantar keratoderma and dermatophytosis. 44% of the patients with dermatophytosis had a personal and/or family history of atopy and 67% a total IgE(More)
