Papular acantholytic dyskeratosis (PADGA) of the genitocrural area is rare. The aetiology, clinical and histological appearances overlap with Darier's disease and Hailey-Hailey disease. As they may be initially misdiagnosed as sexually transmitted infections, skin biopsy is necessary for diagnosis. In this article, we illustrate two men with PADGA, from the clinical course, diagnosis, to treatment.
