It occurs in many conditions, such as: diabetes mellitus, chronic renal failure and sclerosing cholangitis. This article describes a 17-year-old Caucasian female with type I glucogenosis and acquired perforating dermatosis due to chronic hepatic failure caused by hepatic complication of liver transplant.
