• Three Japanese brothers had the rosacea-like facies and multiple intraepidermal epitheliomas that characterize Haber's syndrome. They also had xerosis of the lower extremities. The facial lesions were dry, warm, erythematous, and indurated, with enlarged follicular orifices and telangiectasia. One patient had disturbing "burning" of the face, which was relieved by short courses of steroid therapy that were given for systemic effects.
