Abstract


D-Penicillamine has been used for the prevention of stone formation in patients suffering from cystinuria and its use has been associated with numerous side-effects. We present an unusual case of elastosis perforans serpiginosa associated with pseudo-pseudoxanthoma elasticum after treatment with D - penicillamine. These cutaneous lesions persisted for years despite discontinuation of the treatment.
