Keratoelastoidosis marginalis of the hands (KEMH) is a distinct solar elastotic dermatosis belonging to the group of marginal keratoderma. It is characterized by linear plaques on the hand and calcified dermal elastotic masses predominantly affecting the radial side of the index finger, first web space, and ulnar side of the thumb. It is predominantly seen in the middle-aged and elderly age group. We report the occurrence of KEMH in two farmers with other cutaneous features of chronic actinic damage.
