ABSTRACT
Cutis verticis gyrata is characterized by excessive formation of scalp skin. It may be primary (essential and nonessential) or secondary. In the primary essential form it presents only folding skin formation on the scalp, mimicking cerebral gyri, without associated comorbidities. We report a rare case of a 28 year-old male patient with primary essential cutis verticis gyrata.

f02: Cutis verticis gyrata. Scalp hypertrophy with anteroposterior folds in parietalregion

Mentions: Male patient, 28 year old, of mixed race, presented for two years scalp skin redundancy,with deep cerebriform folds and wrinkles, located in parietaloccipital regions (Figures 1 and 2). He denies comorbidities, similar family history, consanguinity and usage ofanabolic steroid drugs, as well as skin and scalp inflammatory disease history. He didnot present neurological or ophthalmological changes. The anatomopathological examrevealed epidermis and dermis within histological standards of normality (Figures 3 and 4), the clinical picture being compatible with CVG. For the exclusion ofsecondary causes by acromegaly and pachydermoperiostosis the following tests wereperformed: skull X-ray, computed tomography of skull and sella turcica, nuclear magneticresonance of the sella turcica and serum growth hormone dosage, which showed noalterations. Conditions associated with CVG were discarded: myxedema, leukemia,acanthosis nigricans, diabetes mellitus, syphilis by TSH serum dosage,free T4, complete blood count, fasting blood glucose, total cholesterol and fractions,and Venereal Disease Research Laboratory test - VDRL. All results werewithin normal limits.
