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.
