Darier's disease is an autosomal dominant condition of variable severity affecting the skin, nails and mucosa. A 37-year-old man with Darier's disease on the soles of both feet was medically managed with oral retinoids, but areas of disease continued to fissure and cause excruciating pain. Surgical management with excision of diseased skin and resurfacing with split skin grafting was successful. There has been no disease recurrence at 6-month follow-up. This is the first reported case of excision and skin grafting for Darier's disease in the foot, a notoriously difficult area to operate on successfully. It also adds further evidence to the beneficial outcomes of surgical management in Darier's disease. Level of Evidence: Level V, therapeutic study.
