Atrophodermia vermiculata: case report and review of the literature.

Abstract

A 21-year-old woman with an 11-year history of symmetric reticular atrophy on both cheeks, pre-auricular areas, and forehead is presented. The depressions gave a worm-eaten appearance to the skin. Histopathological findings from a biopsy specimen of lesional skin revealed an atrophic follicle. The connective tissue showed mild inflammation in perifollicular and perivascular distribution. The hair follicle was widely dilated and was filled with a keratotic plug. This case points out many of the outstanding clinical and histopathological features of atrophodermia vermiculata as described previously. Atrophodermia vermiculata appears to be one of a group of closely related conditions characterized by keratosis pilaris and atrophy of the skin.
