A case of mid-dermal elastolysis is reported in a 37-year-old female patient, who presented skin areas with fine wrinkles, mainly in fold areas and also perifollicular papules similar to peau d'orange in the paravertebral area, lending her a prematurely elderly appearance. Histological examination revealed fragmentation and rarefaction of elastic fibers, restricted to the mid-dermis portion.

Keywords : Dermis; Elastic tissue; Skin aging.
