Darier disease is considered a hereditary acantholytic dermatosis that is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner and usually manifests in the first or second decade of life. We describe a 62-year-old man with an acquired variant of Darier disease after a recent diagnosis of metastatic prostate cancer. We discuss and postulate a novel mechanism for this unusual presentation.
