Asymptomatic Blanching Palmar Eruption
Asymptomatic non blanching eruption
A 14-year-old, otherwise healthy boy presented with an asymptomatic red blanching eruption on the palms that developed about one week earlier. Soles were not involved. No inciting factor including drugs or illness could be recognized. Rest of the physical examination and routine blood and urine tests were unremarkable. What conditions can give rise to this eruption and how should we work it up ?
