Tylosis is a congenital hyperkeratosis with pitting of the palms - tylosis palmaris - and of the soles - tylosis plantaris. It is inherited as an autosomal dominant trait.
In some cases, it is associated with oesophageal carcinoma.
Treatment measures include the use of a keratolytic. Systemic treatment with retinoids may be used.
