 Cases of keratoderma are the most common among genodermatoses and take the second place after a group of ichthyosis. The frequency of occurrence of keratodermia in the world, including Russia, is from 1:300 to 1:15000. There is a very rare form of diffuse keratoderma: Olmsted Syndrome, which in 2009 is described in 10 sources of scientific literature. The defeat not only affects the palms and soles, and skin around the orifices, forms a flexion deformity and con-tracture fingers, until spontaneous amputation. Some observations noted the presence of follicular keratosis of the extremities, leukokeratosis on the face and language, pererastayut joints, alopecia, absence of premolars. We present a clinical case of a patient with this pathology.
