Abstract

A 12-year-old girl with trisomy 21 (Downs syndrome) presented with an approximate 2-year history of an asymptomatic eruption on the right upper arm and left lateral neck that was clinically and histologically diagnostic of elastosis perforans serpiginosa (EPS). EPS is a perforating dermatosis affecting the face, ear, neck, extremities, or trunk. It occurs with greater frequency in persons with trisomy 21, as well as some other genetic syndromes and after D-penicillamine therapy. It has also been reported as a sporadic, presumably unrelated disorder in several acquired diseases.
