We have seen multiple cases of a characteristic skin lesion produced by smoking crack cocaine. We describe a typical case with photographs demonstrating multiple blackened hyperkeratotic lesions of the palmar aspects of the fingers and palm, some linear, some circular. These involve mostly the dominant hand and are caused by the heat of the glass cocaine pipe.
