Haber's syndrome is a rare genodermatosis characterised by an early onset rosacea-like eruption associated with multiple truncal keratotic lesions. The present study reports the clinical presentation, histology and response to therapy of two cases of Haber's syndrome. The cases presented with the typical features of Haber's syndrome. Case 1 also had diffuse palmoplantar keratoderma and prominent nail cuticles, and case 2 had diffuse palmar keratoderma. These features have not been previously reported in Haber's syndrome. In the present study Haber's syndrome is reviewed, and its relationship to Dowling-Degos disease and acropigmentation of Kitamura are discussed.
