We report a case of multiple minute digitate hyperkeratosis. The patient had hundreds of keratotic lesions - some tiny and spiked, others larger, flat papules - localized on the trunk and arms. Histologic sections showed focal areas of compact hyperorthokeratosis with few dermal changes. Ultrastructurally, keratohyalin granules were smaller than normal. The keratin pattern was one of a normal variant. Odland bodies present. Various family members of the patient, in different generations, were affected.
