Abstract

MINELLI, Lorivaldo; GON, Airton dos Santos  and  MEDEIROS, Rodrigo Almeida de. Case for diagnosis?. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2008, vol.83, n.5, pp. 480-481. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962008000500015.

The authors report the case of a patient with insulin-dependent type II diabetes, who presented asymptomatic and atrophic reddish brown patches on his abdomen and thighs. The histopathological features of the lesions showed a combination of vascular disease and minor collagen changes, compatible with the diagnosis of diabetic dermopathy.

Keywords : Diabetes complications; Diabetes mellitus; Diabetic angiopathies.
