The case of a 74-year-old patient with pityriasis rubra pilaris of 10 years of evolution was presented. It was observed that the skin disease was associated with rheumatoid arthritis, which made the authors think about the possible etiologic role played by the immunological factors in pityriasis rubra pilaris. A bladder papillary carcinoma, mutiple seborrheic keratosis, a laryngeal bening tumor, basal carcinomas and a keratoacanthoma appeared during its evolution. The patient received treatment with methotrexate, but it was not successful for its PRP. A good response was observed with etretinate
