MA, Han et al. Primary localized cutaneous amyloidosis with lichen and poikiloderma-like lesions and an excellent response to systemic acitretin. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2016, vol.91, n.5, pp.661-663. ISSN 1806-4841.  https://doi.org/10.1590/abd1806-4841.20164316.

Primary localized cutaneous amyloidosis is a skin-limited amyloidosis that does not involve internal organs. It is clinically subclassified into 3 general categories and some rare variants. However, there is considerable overlap within the classification. Though there are a variety of therapeutic measures, the treatment is often unsatisfactory, particularly when the disease is severe and extensive. We describe a rare case of primary localized cutaneous amyloidosis with lichen and poikiloderma-like lesions that showed an excellent response to systemic acitretin.
