Abstract

: Anetoderma is a benign condition characterized by round or oval macular lesions with focal loss of dermal elastic tissue resulting in localized areas of flaccid or herniated saclike skin. Often, the anetoderma is associated with immuno-mediated pathogenetic mechanism. In this article, we describe the association between anetoderma and autoimmune diseases, by underlining the role and the action of macrophages as a possible etiopathogenesis.
