Degenerative collagenous plaques of the hands is an underrecognized acquired dermatosis characterized by slowly progressive linear depressed bands appearing symmetrically at the margins of palmar and dorsal skin of the hands. It is more common in the elderly and is believed to result from chronic pressure and ultraviolet radiation. We present an elderly woman with degenerative collagenous plaques of the hands to highlight an underrecognized rare dermatosis.
