Abstract

A 50-year-old woman who presented with intermittent symmetric edema and wrinkling of the palms after soaking in water was found to have transient reactive papulotranslucent acrokeratoderma (TRPA). This is the oldest patient ever reported to have this condition. The patient was advised to avoid water exposure as much as possible and to wear gloves. Topical treatment with 5% salicylic acid in Vaseline (R) also provided some relief.
