Oral Oncol. 1997 Jan;33(1):55-7. doi: 10.1016/s0964-1955(96)00052-8.


The oral lesions in patients with tylosis (palmoplantar keratoderma) associated with oesophageal cancer, are evaluated, based on their clinical presentation, histological features and long term follow-up. The terminology of these lesions is discussed, together with a proposed reclassification of some forms of palmoplantar keratoderma.
