A case of a 52-year old tennis instructor who has asymptomatic marginal keratotic papular lesions on both hands is described. The lesions had appeared approximately 6 years before, and have since increased. The histological and the anamnestic evidence point to the diagnosis of degenerative collagenous plaques of the hands which we can now place in the group of acquired marginal papular acrokeratodermas. The authors describe the present classification of various diseases which are differentiated both histologically and etiologically but share a common clinical appearance.
