Unilateral generalized keratosis pilaris following pregnancy.Cutis. 2014 Oct; 94(4):203-5.C
Keratosis pilaris (KP) is a common inherited disorder characterized by small folliculocentric keratotic papules that may have surrounding erythema, which gives the skin a stippled appearance resembling gooseflesh. The extensor surfaces of the upper arms, thighs, and buttocks commonly are affected, but a generalized presentation may occur. We report the case of a 29-year-old woman with unilateral generalized KP in the second month of her second pregnancy. Both a genetic mutation and pregnancy-induced hormonal changes played possible roles in the development and progress of unilateral generalized KP in this patient.
