Cutaneous variant of angiokeratoma corporis diffusum

Dermatol Online J. 2003 Feb;9(1):13.


A case of angiokeratoma corporis diffusum (ACD) involving the skin of a 22-year-old patient presenting with normal physical and mental development is reported. ACD presenting with skin lesions alone is a rare but specific clinical entity, which differs from hereditary sphingolipidoses such as Fabry's disease.
