It is an extremely rare medical condition characterized by hands and feet hyperkeratosis and the association with an esophageal cancer. For this reason, it is sometimes known as tylosis with esophageal cancer TOC. It is an autosomal dominant inherited disorder. Originally described in two families from Liverpool, UK.

Howel—Evans syndrome is an extremely rare condition involving thickening of the skin in the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet hyperkeratosis.

This familial disease is associated with a high lifetime risk of esophageal cancer. For this reason, it is sometimes known as tylosis with oesophageal cancer TOC. The condition is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner, and it has been linked to a mutation in the RHBDF2 gene.

It was first described in Another classification divides these into an early onset type type B which occurs in the first year of life and is usually benign and a type A tylosis which occurs between the ages of 5 and 15 years and is strongly associated with esophageal cancer.

It is thought to play an important role in the epithelial response to injury in the esophagus and skin. RHBDF2 is involved in the regulation of the secretion of several ligands of the epidermal growth factor receptor. The rhomboid proteases — the first known intramembranous serine proteases [8] — were discovered in Rhomboid family members are widely conserved and found in all three kingdoms of life.

Thrombomodulin — a membrane glycoprotein — is upregulated in neoepidermis during cutaneous wound healing. RHBDL2 cleaves thrombomodulin at the transmembrane domain and causes the release of soluble thrombomodulin. RHBDF2 may also play a role in ovarian epithelial cancer.

Possible associations with gastric cancer [13] [14] and lung cancer [15] [16] [17] [18] have been suggested. Other possible associations include corneal defects, congenital pulmonary stenosis , [19] total anomalous pulmonary venous connection [20] deafness [21] and optic atrophy. These proteins may also have a role in diabetes. The differential diagnosis is quite extensive and includes [27] [28]. The condition is also referred to by several other names, including "familial keratoderma with carcinoma of the esophagus," "focal non-epidermolytic palmoplantar keratoderma with carcinoma of the esophagus," [29] "Palmoplantar ectodermal dysplasia type III," "palmoplantar keratoderma associated with esophageal cancer," "tylosis" [30] : [31] : and "tylosis—esophageal cancer" [29].
