Abstract

Pachydermoperiostosis is known to occur in three distinct forms: complete, incomplete, and form fruste. We report four patients with clubbing and a cylindrical appearance of lower legs without pachydermia and periostosis. We believe that this represents a milder, but distinct subgroup of pachydermoperiostosis. One family showed probable autosomal recessive inheritance.
