    Abstract

    Pachyonychia congenita (PC), a rare autosomal-dominant keratin disorder caused by mutations in keratin genes KRT6A/B, KRT16, or KRT17, is characterized by painful plantar keratoderma and hypertrophic nail dystrophy. Available studies assessing oral retinoid treatment for PC are limited to a few case reports.
