Pitted keratolysis (PK) is an infectious disease primarily affecting the feet and, occasionally, the palms of the hand associated with various causative agents. A 22-year-old man presented with PK, demonstrating the typical crateriform pits on the plantar surface of the feet, mainly on heels. On skin scraping, Gram(+) cocci were demonstrated, and in the culture Kytococcus sedentarius was isolated. Complete clearence occured following a three-week administration of oral erythromycin and application of topical fusidic acid cream.
