Pachydermoperiostosis is a rare autosomal dominant genodermatosis characterized by bone and cutaneous involvement, even though its prevalence and incidence are ignored. It occurs predominantly in men, which present a more serious clinical presentation. We report a case of a 60-year-old man with this disease.

Keywords : Facial dermatoses; Hyperostosis; Osteoarthropathy, primary hypertrophic.
