Indian J Dermatol Venereol Leprol 2012 Mar-Apr;78(2):182-5

Department of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology, Muzaffarnagar Medical College, Muzaffarnagar, India.

Familial atrophia maculosa varioliformis cutis is a very rare disorder with less than 28 cases being reported in the literature worldwide and remains a mystery both as far as genetics and the virtue of its pathogenesis is concerned. We present a case of mother and son, both having this disorder with presentations unique in terms of sites involved and try to draw a five generations pedigree chart for the same. We further support its inheritance pattern as autosomal dominant. Read More

Atrophia maculosa varioliformis cutis.

Br J Dermatol 1986 Jul;115(1):105-9

Because AMVC may be confused with scarring, and factitial disease may be suggested, it is important that this condition be recognized by the physician. Read More
