Anetoderma is a rare benign dermatosis caused by a loss of mid-dermal elastic tissue resulting in well-circumscribed areas of pouchlike herniations of flaccid skin. Anetoderma is classically categorized as either primary (idiopathic) or secondary (following an inflammatory dermatosis in the same location). We report a case of primary anetoderma (PA) occurring in a human immunodeficiency virus 1 (HIV-1 )-infectedman. We review the clinical presentation, possible etiologies, associated conditions, and limited treatment options of this disease._______________________.
