Aquagenic syringeal acrokeratoderma (ASA) is a rare form of palmoplantar keratoderma occurring after short-term contact with water. Although ASA usually involves the palmar region, there are also several cases with the involvement of dorsum of hand and sole of the feet. We described 15-year old girl who had white keratodermic plaques observed on the flexor side of distal phalanxes especially the periungual area after a 10 min contact with water. Our patient represents a rare case of ASA with the involvement of periungual region of the fingers.
