Abstract

Porokeratosis developing subsequent to immunosuppressive therapy is a common and well recognized phenomenon. A previously reported case of porokeratosis showed complete remission of the lesions following discontinuation of immunosuppression. A second example of porokeratosis is presented, in which lesions appeared 2 years after bone marrow transplantation, and completely regressed after immunosuppressive therapy was stopped.
