Elastoderma: A Rare Disorder of Skin

Elastoderma: A Rare Disorder of Skin

Elastoderma is a rare disease characterized by increased laxity of skin. Most commonly affected areas are neck and extremities. The cause of Elastoderma is unknown. It is not familial. The cases of elastoderma occur sporadically. The condition is typically associated with excessive production of elastin. In addition to extremely elastic skin, individuals with elastoderma may have premature wrinkling of skin, paresthesia, and papules. The condition is usually treated by excision of extra skin. However, the elastic skin returns after excision.
