Pityriasis rubra pilaris (PRP) is an idiopathic papulosquamous disease that clinically presents with palmoplantar keratoderma and follicular hyperkeratotic papules that coalesce into scaly erythematous plaques. We report a unique case of atypical PRP beginning at 1 year of age with associated severe arthropathy and osteoporosis. We further discuss the clinical and histopathologic aspects of PRP, its possible etiology, and other associated conditions.
