Keratosis pilaris and hereditary koilonychia without monilethrix.J Am Acad Dermatol 2001; 45(4):627-9JA
Keratosis pilaris is found commonly in isolation as well as associated with other conditions. We describe a family with keratosis pilaris and hereditary koilonychia, with an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance. These two findings have only been previously found in the context of monilethrix. The coexistence of the two disorders suggests a close association of their genetic pathogenesis.
