• A case of severe cornifying Darier disease (keratosis follicularis) was successfully treated by deep dermal excision of diseased skin and subsequent dermabrasion, resulting in a remission lasting more than four years to date. Persistent loss of the papillary dermis was observed in the surgically treated, disease-free areas.
