Abstract: Keratitis–ichthyosis–deafness (KID) syndrome is a rare genodermatosis that typically results from mutations of the GJB2 gene or, less commonly, the GJB6 gene. Patients with KID syndrome are at higher risk of malignancy and infections. Here, we present 2 patients with KID syndrome who developed verrucous plaques. Given that patients with KID syndrome are at high risk of developing squamous cell carcinoma, biopsies were performed. Both cases revealed histologic findings of marked papillomatous epidermal hyperplasia with numerous fungal spores and pseudohyphae in the stratum corneum. For one case, dail...
