cutis laxa


Is there a treatment for cutis laxa?

Treating cutis laxa will depend on the extent of disease and the exact symptoms an individual may have. Cutis laxa does not have a cure.

Specific treatments may include surgeries for hernias, skeletal malformations, and intestinal diverticula. Cosmetic surgery can also be used to improve some of the skin symptoms.

Individuals with cutis laxa that involves the cardiovascular system may be placed on certain medications to delay or prevent the severe complications that can arise from the cardiovascular involvement. Sometimes this includes more intensive cardiac monitoring to determine when surgical intervention may be needed or use of a beta blocker to reduce the pressure placed on the veins and arteries.
