Eruptive collagenoma: a rarely reported entity in Indian literature.

Barad P, Fernandes J, Shukla P - Indian J Dermatol (2015 Jan-Feb)

Bottom Line: Eruptive collagenomas are non familial connective tissue nevi of unknown etiology presented with an abrupt onset.While most cases are reported in young adults, there is a paucity of literature in children.We report a case of a 4-year-old girl, who presented with multiple asymptomatic, papules, plaques and nodules on the face, trunk and upper extremities with no systemic involvement.

ABSTRACT
Eruptive collagenomas are non familial connective tissue nevi of unknown etiology presented with an abrupt onset. While most cases are reported in young adults, there is a paucity of literature in children. We report a case of a 4-year-old girl, who presented with multiple asymptomatic, papules, plaques and nodules on the face, trunk and upper extremities with no systemic involvement. Histopathologically, the lesion showed thickened homogenized collagen fibres highlighted by Masson's trichrome stain and paucity in elastic fibres by Verhoeff-van Gieson stain, confirming the diagnosis of eruptive collagenoma.

Mentions: Routine investigations were normal, while histopathology revealed a thickened reticular dermis with haphazardly arranged thickened collagen bundles suggestive of collagen naevus on haematoxylin and eosin stain [Figure 4]. Masson's trichrome highlighted an increase in the collagen tissue in the dermis [Figure 5], while Verhoeff-van Gieson showed a marked paucity of elastic fibres [Figure 6].
