Aquagenic Wrinkling of the Palms (AWP) is a rare dermatologic disease. It was first described four decades ago as a potential test for Cystic Fibrosis (CF) by detecting “skin wrinkling” in response to water immersion. We are reporting two cases of AWP diagnosed at Derma Clinic, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The first case was a nine year old girl and the second case was a 17 year old adolescent male. The second case was associated with palmer hyperhidrosis. Both patients denied any medication use. Additionally, signs and symptoms suggesting CF were lacking. Local dermatologists should be aware of rare conditions such as AWP and lack of previous reports from the region may indicate under-reporting rather than lack of cases.

Abdulaziz H Al Hussain has completed his Medical School at King Saud Bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in 2013. Currently, he is enrolled in King Saud University for Dermatology Residency Training Program. He has attended and contributed in many dermatological researches and scientific meetings.
