Atrophoderma vermiculatum: a case report and review of the literature on keratosis pilaris atrophicans.

Abstract

Atrophoderma vermiculatum (AV) is a rare follicular disorder primarily affecting children with reticular or honeycomb atrophy of the cheeks and forehead. Along with keratosis pilaris atrophicans faciei (KPAF) and keratosis follicularis spinulosa decalvans (KFSD), AV falls within the broader spectrum of keratosis pilaris atrophicans (KPA). Although these 3 variants of KPA have unique presentations and associations, they can all be frustratingly difficult to treat. We describe a sporadic case of AV that presented in late adolescence, a relatively late age of onset.
