Keratoderma Plantare. Presented by Dr. W. H. Guy and Dr. F. M. Jacob.
A. S., an Italian woman aged 40, complains of thickening of the skin of the left toes and heel. This has been present for several years. Improvement has frequently occurred after the administration of thyroid, and the condition has promptly recurred when this medication has been stopped.There are large areas of hyperkeratosis on the inner side of the heel and behind the great toe of the left foot.
Dr. Lester Hollander: This patient is in the period of life during which women are subject to keratoderma climactericum.Dr. F. M. Jacob: I observed three cases like this one at the Pittsburgh Hospital. Two patients were nuns. One of them had rheumatic iritis accompanying the keratoderma and was given thyroid for the iritis. The keratoderma disappeared with the iritis.
