Elastosis perforans serpiginosa

8 de janeiro de 2016

A 22-year-old male patient, African descent, in august 2011, complained of “dots in his arms,” for one year duration, associated with slight pruritus. The patient had obesity level II and high blood pressure, on regular hydrochlorothiazide and losartan.

On clinical examination, erythematous papules with central crusts, coalescing to form serpiginous lesions were seen over arms. It was suggestive of elastosis perforans serpiginosa (EPS) and a biopsy was carried out in the right arm lesions.
