Pachydermoperiostosis (PDP) is a male predominant rare genodermatosis. Various clinical presentations includes pachydermia (thickened and folded skin), periostosis and digital clubbing. Both the skin and the extremity findings are seen in the complete form, whereas the incomplete form lacks the skin findings. We report a case of primary form of pachydermoperiostosis together with literature review.
