Definition

Keratoderma blennorrhagicum is a skin lesion commonly found on the palms and soles but which may spread to the scrotum, scalp and trunk also, and which resemble psoriasis. It's commonly seen as a feature of reactive arthritis (Reiter's syndrome) in almost 15% of male patients. The appearance is usually of a vesico-pustular waxy lesion with a yellow brown color. These lesions may join together to form larger crusty plaques with desquamating edges. .. anon contributor
