Congenital tylosis and the role of the plastic and reconstructive surgeon

Congenital tylosis and the role of the plastic and reconstructive surgeon Congenital tylosis or hereditary palmoplantar keratoderma is a group of heterogeneous diseases characterised by thickening of the skin on the palms and soles of feet. A case history of a patient with congenital tylosis is presented to highlight the involvement of plastic and reconstructive surgery in the management of this issue. The management of this condition is discussed and poses a difficult challenge requiring the corroborative efforts of many health care professionals. It appears that there is no single answer to the treatment of this condition, although topical and systemic treatments, in conjunction with surgical management of extensive disease and physiotherapy for contracture formation seem to be the appropriate management plan. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Journal of Plastic Surgery Springer Journals

Abstract

Congenital tylosis or hereditary palmoplantar keratoderma is a group of heterogeneous diseases characterised by thickening of the skin on the palms and soles of feet. A case history of a patient with congenital tylosis is presented to highlight the involvement of plastic and reconstructive surgery in the management of this issue. The management of this condition is discussed and poses a difficult challenge requiring the corroborative efforts of many health care professionals. It appears that there is no single answer to the treatment of this condition, although topical and systemic treatments, in conjunction with surgical management of extensive disease and physiotherapy for contracture formation seem to be the appropriate management plan.
