Authors report a 41-year-old male patient with multiple symmetric lipomatosis, who also had psoriasis. In addition he suffered from peripheral neuropathy, acro-osteolysis and malum perforans pedis fulfilling the criteria of Bureau-Barrière syndrome. Considering the severe peripheral neuropathy and the preliminary report on the efficacy of carbamazepine in psoriasis, a carbamazepine monotherapy was initiated for both indications. The psoriatic skin symptoms cleared within 6 weeks. The patient has continued this medication for 8 months without side effects. During that time his skin remained symptom free and the neuropathy has improved.
