DELLATORRE, Gerson  and  CASTRO, Caio César Silva de. Do you know this syndrome?. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2012, vol.87, n.1, pp.155-156. ISSN 0365-0596.

The SAPHO syndrome (synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis and osteitis) includes a group of findings characterized by bone lesions usually located on the anterior chest wall, often associated with skin lesions. We report the case of a 47 years old patient, with osteochondritis at costoesternal and manubrium-sternal joints, besides of palmar-plantar pustulosis. The diagnosis is predominantly clinical and there are several treatment options described in the literature.

Keywords : Acquired hyperostosis syndrome; Acne vulgaris; Psoriasis; Synovitis.
