Abstract

Disseminated superficial porokeratosis is a keratinization disorder characterized by multiple brown, atrophic patches with sharply demarcated and hypertrophic ridges. Atypical cases of disseminated superficial porokeratosis with acute exacerbation accompanied by severe pruritus have been reported as "eruptive pruritic papular porokeratosis" or "inflammatory disseminated superficial porokeratosis." We report a case of inflammatory disseminated superficial porokeratosis in a 53-year-old man who was successfully treated with oral isotretinoin.
