Abstract

Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome (PLS) is a rare inherited palmoplantar keratoderma (PPK) that is associated with progressive gingivitis and recurrent pyodermas. We present a case exhibiting classic features of this autosomal-recessive condition and review the current understanding of its pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment. Additionally, a review of pertinent transgredient PPKs is undertaken, with key and distinguishing features of each syndrome highlighted.
