Abstract

VALE, Lia Rachel Gomes do et al. Transgrediens pachydermodactyly: report of a case. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2009, vol.84, n.2, pp. 190-193. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962009000200014.

Pachydermodactyly is a rare form of digital fibromatosis involving the proximal portions of the fingers that usually affects young males. We present a 25-year-old male patient with a twoyear history of asymptomatic nodules in the fingers. Three months before the visit, he had observed similar lesions on the feet and right knee. Histopathological analysis showed thickened dermis with proliferation of fibroblasts and collagenous fibers, with deposition of mucinous material. This represents a rare case of pachydermodactyly of transgrediens form.
