Olmsted syndrome

A rare congenital disorder (OMIM:614594) characterised by bilateral mutilating palmoplantar keratoderma and periorificial keratotic plaques with severe pruritus, variably accompanied by diffuse alopecia, constriction of digits (which may progress to autoamputation of fingers and toes), onychodystrophy, infections, and squamous cell carcinomas arising on the keratotic areas.
