Answer

The most common forms of porokeratosis are as follows:

  • Classic porokeratosis of Mibelli (PM) [2]
  • Disseminated superficial actinic porokeratosis (DSAP) and its nonactinic variant disseminated superficial porokeratosis (DSP)
  • Linear porokeratosis
  • Porokeratosis palmaris et plantaris disseminata (PPPD)
  • Punctate porokeratosis, which might represent a variant of PPPD [3]

A patient may develop more than one type of porokeratosis simultaneously or consecutively. [2]
