Abstract

A 62-year-old male presented with a 2-year history of hyperkeratotic lesions of the hands and feet. Previous treatment with topical steroids was unsuccessful. A complete physical examination revealed the presence of blood in the stool, and sigmoidoscopy showed an ulcerative growth at the rectosigmoid junction. The histopathology showed adenocarcinoma.
