Abstract

Pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) is a heritable disorder of elastic fibers characterized by yellowish, coalescing papules on the loose and wrinkled flexural area. There have been no reports of osteoma cutis associated with PXE. A 17-year-old Korean girl presented cutis laxa-like marked wrinkling on the flexural area, and a skin biopsy specimen revealed multiple foci of ossification with irregularly clumped, basophilic-stained elastic fibers in the reticular dermis and calcium deposits along the elastic fibers. Ultrasonographic evaluation showed multiple tiny osteomas diffusely scattered along the entire abdominal wall, axillae, and medial aspect of the upper arms. We report the first case of osteoma cutis coexisting with cutis laxa-like PXE.
