Porokeratosis is a clonal disorder of the keratinization of the epidermis, manifested by atrophic papules or patches, surrounded by the hyperkeratotic ridge-like border, that corresponds to cornoid lamella histologically. We reported an association of a rare form of that distinctive disease – Porokeratosis Palmaris et plantaris disseminate with vitiligo in a 62-year-old female with rheumatoid arthritis on immunosuppressant treatment.
