Keratosis Follicularis (Darier's Disease). Presented by Dr. James H. Bennett and Dr. Rees B. Rees.  A 31-year-old man developed an eruption on his scalp, neck, and upper trunk, which was diagnosed as keratosis follicularis in 1943. Since then the eruption has progressed to involve his legs. He feels sunshine improves the eruption on his back but aggravates it on his legs. He has been treated with 3 courses of vitamin A without improvement. There was no response to Triquin tablets twice daily for several weeks. His mother has a milder form of the disease.There are multiple, almost confluent, verrucous areas on his legs, with papular crusted lesions over his body, neck, and scalp.
