This cutaneous disorder is characterized by recurrent episodes of intensely pruritic pustules and papulovesicles on the hands and feet. Lesions are most common on the palms and soles but may be seen on the dorsal surfaces as well. Lesions may also occur on the ankles, forearms, and, rarely, the face, scalp, and upper trunk. The age at onset is typically between 2 and 10 months.
