Combined high-frequency and Doppler ultrasound in early diagnosis of atrophoderma of Pasini and Pierini.

Discipline of Dermatology, Faculdade de Ciências Médicas, Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil.

Atrophoderma of Pasini and Pierini is a skin disorder affecting dermal collagen and is clinically characterized by well-defined plaques of depressed skin. Histopathological changes are subtle, and in most cases, the diagnosis requires a comparative study with healthy skin from the same anatomical site. High frequency ultrasound is a useful imaging method for diagnosis of atrophic skin changes. Read More

Atrophoderma of Pasini and Pierini in a young adult: a case report.

Acta Dermatovenerol Alp Pannonica Adriat 2019 Mar;28(1):45-46

Nuclear Medicine Department, University Clinical Center, Prishtina, Kosovo.

Atrophoderma of Pasini and Pierini is a skin atrophy presenting as single or multiple sharply demarcated, hyperpigmented, non-indurated patches, with a slight depression of the skin, that can converge and form a confluent area with atrophy as a consequence. The condition was first described by Pasini in 1923 and subsequently by Pierini in 1936. They distinguished this form of atrophy from other diseases and conditions in which the atrophy is morphologically and clinically different. Read More

Division of Dermatology McGill University Health Centre Montreal Québec Canada.

Idiopathic Atrophoderma of Pasini and Pierini should be considered on the differential in a patient presenting with an asymptomatic atrophic plaque on the skin. Differentiation from Linear Atrophoderma of Moulin and morphea remains a challenge; however, features of the presentation and tissue biopsy can help establish the diagnosis. Read More

Idiopathic atrophoderma of Pasini and Pierini: A case study of collagen and elastin texture by multiphoton microscopy.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2017 Nov 25;77(5):930-937. Epub 2017 Apr 25.

Background: The diagnosis of idiopathic atrophoderma of Pasini and Pierini (IAPP) relies on typical clinical features, particularly distinctive pigmented ovular/round depressed plaques. Histologic examination often reveals no obvious changes, but patterns of collagen distribution, using multiphoton imaging and second harmonic generation can help track hidden details of tissue organization contributing to atrophy.

Objective: To identify histologic features that distinguish IAPP from unaffected skin. Read More

Linear atrophoderma of Moulin (LAM) is an acquired skin condition that manifests in early childhood and adolescence. It likely represents a form of cutaneous mosaicism that presents with linear, hyperpigmented and atrophic lesions appearing on the trunk and limbs. Its clinical appearance varies and may closely resemble that of atrophoderma of Pasini and Pierini (APP) and linear scleroderma. Read More

Diagnosis and management of morphea and lichen sclerosus and atrophicus in children.

Morphea (localized scleroderma) is a rare fibrosing disorder of the skin and underlying tissues characterized by skin thickening and hardening due to increased collagen deposition. The significance of the disease depends on the extent of the lesions, potential for functional disability or cosmetic disfigurement, and presence or absence of extracutaneous manifestations. Treatment is tailored; circumscribed forms may require only topical treatment, while forms causing functional impairment or severe cosmetic change may require systemic treatment. Read More

Actas Dermosifiliogr 2013 Oct 13;104(8):654-66. Epub 2013 Aug 13.

Servicio de Dermatología, Hospital Universitari Germans Trias i Pujol, Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain. Electronic address:

Morphea or localized scleroderma is a distinctive inflammatory disease that leads to sclerosis of the skin and subcutaneous tissues. It comprises a number of subtypes differentiated according to their clinical presentation and the structure of the skin and underlying tissues involved in the fibrotic process. However, classification is difficult because the boundaries between the different types of morphea are blurred and different entities frequently overlap. Read More

Linear atrophoderma of Moulin: a distinct entity?

Pediatr Dermatol 2014 May-Jun;31(3):373-7. Epub 2012 Oct 9.

School of Medicine, Medical College of Georgia, Georgia Health Sciences University, Augusta, Georgia.

Linear atrophoderma of Moulin (LAM) is a rare dermatologic disorder characterized by a hyperpigmented atrophoderma that consistently follows the lines of Blaschko. There are many clinical and histologic similarities between LAM, atrophoderma of Pasini and Pierini (APP), and morphea, and whether LAM represents part of a disease spectrum or its own distinct entity is debated. This case of a 16-year-old boy with LAM supports the hypothesis that LAM, APP, and morphea are a spectrum of disorders rather than unique entities. Read More
