Stucco keratosis was first described by Kocsard and Ofner in 1965 and later by Willoughby and Soter in 1972.
Stucco keratosis is a keratotic papule that is usually found on the distal lower acral extremities of males. Stucco keratosis seems to appear with a higher frequency in males.
Usually, multiple lesions are found in stucco keratosis; in one study, between 7 and more than 100 lesions were noted on the patients. The lesion is asymptomatic, and patients usually do not complain of having the lesions. The name stucco keratosis is derived from the “stuck on” appearance of the lesions.
