MACIEL, Marina Gagheggi et al. Elastoma: clinical and histopathological aspects of a rare disease. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2016, vol.91, n.5, suppl.1, pp.39-41. ISSN 0365-0596.

Elastoma is a connective tissue nevus characterized by changes in elastic fibers. It can be congenital or acquired, and is usually diagnosed before puberty. Associated with osteopoikilosis, it is known as Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome. Histopathology with specific staining for elastic fibers is critical for a diagnostic conclusion. This report describes the case of a 7-year-old male patient with lesions diagnosed as elastoma, with absence of bone changes in the radiological imaging. This study aims to report the clinical presentation and histological examination of such unusual disease.
