Abstract

Penicillamine-induced skin changes are rare and include: hypersensitivity reactions, autoimmune reactions, and cutaneous elastoses. We report a case of a 73-year-old man with cystinuria taking penicillamine for over 50 years who presented with penicillamine-induced cutis laxa and milia en plaque. A brief review of penicillamine induced skin changes, specifically cutis laxa and milia en plaque, is presented.
