Abstract

Mid-dermal elastolysis (MDE) is an uncommon and probably underdiagnosed disorder of the elastic tissue. Clinical suspicion and histopathological confirmation are essential for the diagnosis. We report the case of a young woman who presented with this disorder after an inflammatory process during pregnancy and we review the main characteristics of this rare entity.
