Palmoplantar keratodermas (PPKs) are a rare heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by abnormal thickening of the skin of palms and soles. Ocular manifestations reported with palmer planter keratosis include scleral melanosis, macular deposits, and congenital cataract. We report, for the first time, a case of bilateral keratoconus in a patient with PPK.
