Aquagenic palmar wrinkling (APW), synonymously known as aquagenic syringeal acrokeratoderma, transient aquagenic palmar hyperwrinkling, aquagenic palmoplantar keratoderma, or transient reactive papulotranslucent acrokeratoderma, is a distinctive dermatosis characterized by whitish papules, excessive wrinkling, and possible desquamation of the palms and/or soles after immersion into water for a short time[1-5]. We describe herein two cases of aquagenic palmar wrinkling in Indian patients with special reference to its dermoscopic pattern. Since its initial description, only a few cases of APW have been described in literature. To the best of our knowledge, APW is a hitherto unreported condition in Indian population.
