Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome and squamous cell carcinoma: a case report.

[papillon-lefèvre syndrome]

Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive genodermatosis characterised by palmoplantar hyperkeratosis and severe early-onset periodontitis. The development of malignant cutaneous neoplasms within the hyperkeratotic lesions of the syndrome is very rare. Here, we report on a 67-year-old German Caucasian male with Papillon-Lefèvre syndrome associated with recurrent squamous cell carcinoma. Treatment is symptomatic and not always satisfactory.
