cutis laxa


What is Acquired cutis laxa?

Acquired cutis laxa is when someone has cutis laxa not due to a molecular reason (change in gene), but because of environmental factors such as medication, infections, or autoimmune diseases. It is usually seen in adults, and symptoms include skin findings of cutis laxa, which usually start in the face and spreads to other parts of the body. Systemic (other organs) involvement is also possible affecting vascular, gastrointestinal, and pulmonary systems.
