To find out the incidence of k6ratosis punctata of the palmar creases among Indians, 700 consecutive patients add their attendants were surveyed for typical lesions. Fifteen patients were discovered to have characteristic keratotic masses or pits limited to the flexural creases of their palms and fingers. The lesions in each case were asymptomatic. Histologically, they consisted of concentric masses keratin formed in crater-like depressions of the epidermis. Serial sections showed that the epidermis was intact throughout and special stains did not reveal any dermal components in the keratin mases.
