Erythrokeratoderma: Keratinization disorder

Author(s): Jeniffer Stewert*

Erythrokeratoderma is a name used to describe a group of rare hereditary skin disorders characterised by well-defined reddish, dry, and thicker skin plaques. These lesions are usually symmetrically distributed throughout the body and gradually expand and grow over time. Furthermore, within the same family, the severity and progression of the disease might differ dramatically from one person to the next. Progressive Symmetrical Erythrokeratoderma (PSEK) and Erythokeratodermia Variabilis et Progressiva are the two most prevalent kinds of erythrokeratoderma (EKVP)
