Post-inflammatory elastolysis and cutis laxa.

Post-inflammatory elastolysis and cutis laxa (Marshall, Heyl & Weber, 1966) is a skin disease in African infants which appears to be comparatively common in at least two countries. Destruction of elastic tissue and atrophy are preceded by urticarial or by annular erythematous-popular lesions and result in severe disfigurement. The clinical features are intermediate between anetoderma (macular atrophy) and acquired cutis laxa, but sufficiently typical and characteristic to constitute a distinctive syndrome, which might represent an abnormal reaction to the bite of an arthropod.[1]
