What is Tylosis?

  • Tylosis: A condition characterized by thickening of the skin on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. The condition is associated with a risk of developing esophageal cancer which increases with age.
  • Tylosis: An autosomal dominant disorder characterized by a widely distributed, well-demarcated hyperkeratosis of the palms and soles. There is more than one genotypically distinct form, each of which is clinically similar but histologically distinguishable. Diffuse palmoplantar keratoderma is distinct from palmoplantar keratoderma (KERATODERMA, PALMOPLANTAR), as the former exhibits autosomal dominant inheritance and hyperhidrosis is frequently present.
