Abstract:   (2048 Views)

  Dowling-Degos disease is a rare sporadic or autosomal dominant pigmentary entity, in which clusters of papules and reticulate macules slowly develop with predominance in flexural regions. This entity is due to mutations in the keratin 5 gene, and is related with other cutaneous disorders. We report the sporadic form of Dowling-Degos disease in an elderly man with multiple seborrheickeratosis in a “Christmas tree” pattern.Worthy of note in this case study is the lesions evolved for over than 30 years. The aim is to describe the association of these keratoses with Dowling-Degos disease in a healthy man.
