Deep-seated, dusky-red macules and creamy-yellow pustules progress to hyperkeratotic/crusted papules. Lesions are confined to the palms and/or soles and hardly extend over the wrist line. Because of the pustules, the disorder is commonly mistaken for a bacterial or, if confined to a single digit, for herpetic infection.
