In the northernmost county of Seeden (Norrbotten) two different clinical and genetic types of hereditary palmoplantar keratoderma have been reported: a common autosomal dominant form, corresponding to the descriptions performed by Unna and Thost, and an obviously autosomal recessive form, which clinically differed from other diffuse palmoplantar keratodermas, named the Gamborg Nielsen type.
For further family studies and to support its probably recessive inheritance a demographic mapping of four families with this rare keratinization disorder was performed.
It could be shown that these families belonged to the same family at different levels of generations; however, a common ancestor, who connected these families was not found.
