Porokeratotic eccrine ostial and dermal duct nevus (PEODDN) is an uncommon hamartomatous growth with disordered keratinization. The lesions typically appear on the limbs, often at birth or in early childhood, as linearly distributed papules and plaques. We report 4 cases of PEODDN, 2 of which showed significant spontaneous regression.
