Porokeratosis (PK) is defined as hyperpigmented macules or patches with a distinctive, ridge-like hyperkeratotic border which is histologically characterized by a cornoid lamella. Here, we report two cases of linear porokeratosis which converted to multiple cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma after long history progression. In addition, patient 2 was accompanied by secondary dermal amyloid deposits, which was rare reported.
