  • Abstract


    Pachydermoperiostosis (PDP) is the primary form of hypertrophic osteoarthropathy which accounts for 5% of all cases of the disorder. It is a rare hereditary disorder that is associated with digital clubbing, polyarthritis, cutis verticis gyrata, Seborrhea, eyelid ptosis, and hyperhidrosis. In this case report, we discussed a case of an incomplete form of primary hypertrophic osteoarthropathy characterised by evidence of bone abnormalities without pachydermia.
