Miescher Elastoma

Miescher Elastoma: Introduction

Miescher Elastoma: A rare skin condition characterized by the development of small, usually red, bumps on the skin. Abnormal skin fibre tissue forms from the inner skin layer to the outer skin layer which in turn causes the top skin layer to respond to it as if it were a foreign particle i.e. inflammation. The skin bumps that develop are small and often form a circular, linear or snake-like pattern. The back of the neck is the most commonly affected part of the body with the arms, face and legs affected to a lesser degree. Rarely, the trunk may be affected. It may occur for no apparent reason (idiopathic), as a response to certain drugs such as Penicillamine (drug-induced) or it may be associated with inherited conditions such as Ehlers Danlos syndrome, Marfan Syndrome and Down Syndrome. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Miescher Elastoma is available below.
