Localised loose skin on the back; acquired localised cutis laxa

背部局部鬆弛的皮膚:獲得性局限性皮膚鬆弛症

M Aksoy and R Anadolu

Abstract

Cutis laxa (CL); is a rare disease characterised clinically by loose puffy skin and histologically by dermal elastic tissue loss. Both forms of hereditary or acquired CL may be generalised or localised. Acquired CL, which is less common than congenital CL, carries the risk of systemic involvement. The localised form of acquired CL is not common, and it is often preceded by an inflammatory phase. We present a 34 year-old male patient with a localised CL who developed loosening of the skin overlying the right scapula without a preceding inflammatory phase.

皮膚鬆弛症是一種罕見的疾病,其特徵在於臨床上鬆弛的浮腫皮膚和組織學上的皮膚彈性組織損失。無論是遺傳性或獲得性的皮膚鬆弛症,兩者均可以是彌漫性或局部性發生。獲得性皮膚鬆弛症比先天性少見,並有全身受累的風險。獲得性皮膚鬆弛症的局部型並不常見,通常會有先前的炎症期。我們陳述了一名34歲的男性患者,患有局部性皮膚鬆弛症,其右肩胛骨下的皮膚變得鬆弛,但沒有先前的炎症階段。
