Synopsis

Palmar erythema is a hereditary or acquired cutaneous finding. This is symmetric and asymptomatic and typically involves thenar and hypothenar eminences. Less frequently, the volar aspects of fingers are also involved.

Erythema palmare hereditarium (hereditary / congenital / familial palmar erythema, red palms, or Lane disease) is a rare, benign, inherited condition. This condition presents at birth and remains stable throughout life. The erythema is unrelated to temperature or exercise. Various modes of transmission, including autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive patterns as well as spontaneous mutations, have been described.

Acquired palmar erythema is associated with various medical or physiological conditions:
Idiopathic palmar erythema is a diagnosis of exclusion.
