A 48-year-old man presented with symmetric, linear hyperkeratosis on the flexor aspects of the fingers and palms [Figure 1]. He presented a family history of paternal consanguinity (fourth degree) and two sisters with similar lesions. Based on the clinical characteristics and family history, the diagnosis of striated palmoplantar keratoderma was established. The patient refused to give consent for the genetic studies.
