MalaCards based summary: Erythrokeratodermia Variabilis Et Progressiva, also known as erythrokeratodermia variabilis, is related to oculodentodigital dysplasia and mednik syndrome, and has symptoms including microcephaly, dry skin and skin rash. An important gene associated with Erythrokeratodermia Variabilis Et Progressiva is GJB3 (Gap Junction Protein, Beta 3, 31kDa), and among its related pathways are Cell adhesion_Endothelial cell contacts by junctional mechanisms and Oligomerization of connexins into connexons. Affiliated tissues include skin, testes and testis, and related mouse phenotypes are hearing/vestibular/ear and vision/eye.

NIH Rare Diseases:45 Erythrokeratodermia variabilis et progressiva is a skin condition characterized by well-defined round or oval red scaly patches that may join together to form map-like patterns. some patches are fixed, occurring most often on the outer surfaces of the arms and legs, while others are migratory - lasting for hours to days and then fading or moving to another location. some skin lesions are accompanied by burning or itching sensations. common triggers include emotional stress, temperature changes, mechanical friction and hot or cold weather. skin lesions often occur during the fist year of life, gradually progress during childhood, and then stabilize during puberty. treatment is aimed at alleviating symptoms and may include topical retinoids or antihistamines.   last updated: 5/21/2012

Genetics Home Reference:23 Erythrokeratodermia variabilis et progressiva (EKVP) is a skin disorder that is present at birth or becomes apparent in infancy. Although its signs and symptoms vary, the condition is characterized by two major features. The first is areas of hyperkeratosis, which is rough, thickened skin. These thickened patches are usually reddish-brown and can either be widespread over many parts of the body or occur only in a small area. They tend to be fixed, meaning they do not spread or go away. However, the patches can vary in size and shape, and in some affected people they get larger over time. The areas of thickened skin are generally symmetric, which means they occur in the same places on the right and left sides of the body.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:67 Erythrokeratodermia variabilis: A genodermatosis characterized by the appearance of two independent skin lesions: transient figurate erythematous patches and hyperkeratosis that is usually localized but occasionally occurs in its generalized form. Clinical presentation varies significantly within a family and from one family to another. Palmoplantar keratoderma is present in around 50% of cases. Progressive symmetric erythrokeratodermia: Erythrokeratodermas are a group of disorders characterized by widespread erythematous plaques, either stationary or migratory, associated with features that include palmoplantar keratoderma. PSEK is characterized by erythematous and hyperkeratotic plaques.
