Scleredema adultorum is a rare skin disorder reported to occur usually following streptococcal infections. It has characteristic clinical and histopathologic findings; however, associated hyperkeratosis is not known. We report a 6-year-old girl with scleredema adultorurn and hyperkeratosis. The patient's disease had a benign course. To our knowledge, this patient is the first reported with scleredema adultorurn associated with hyperkeratosis.
