A 60-year-old healthy female presented with gradually increasing, spiky projections on both palms for 5 years. On examination, multiple, discrete, firmly adherent, keratotic papules of the size 1–2 mm were noted over both the palms [Figure 1]a and [Figure 1]b. Rest of the cutaneous and systemic examination was unremarkable. Wet contact dermoscopy showed normal skin markings with brownish, keratotic, ovoid projections [Figure 1]c. Complete hemogram, lipid profile, chest roentgenogram, and abdominal ultrasound were normal. Histopathology of the 3 mm punch skin biopsy showed a sharply defined column of parakeratotic cells with underlying hypogranulosis; other layers of the skin were unremarkable. A diagnosis of spiny keratoderma or “music box spine keratoderma” was made. She was treated with urea and salicylic acid formulation which led to slight improvement. Patient is under follow up to look for development of any systemic diseases or malignancy.
