We report here our experience on 3 patients affected by chronic hand eczema treated with oral alitretinoin that obtained the complete resolution of eczematous dermatitis that were simultaneously located in other anatomic sites, including axillae, neck, retroauricular folds, submammary folds and feet. In our opinion the increasing use of alitretinoin will lead to new indications for different dermatologic diseases and also for chronic eczema in areas different from the hands.
