Elastosis perforans serpiginosa with widespread arterial lesions: a case report

Acta Dermato-venereologica
J Eide


A case is presented of elastosis perforans serpiginosa (EPS) with unilateral dermal lesions, widespread arterial lesions with aortic rupture, and elastosis of the endocardium and bronchiolar walls. Other chronic skin disorders with lesions resembling EPS are discussed; and the arterial lesions compared with some arterial diseases. The findings support a concept of the disease as a focal affection of elastic tissue, not only in the skin, but also in arteries and other organs.
