Primary anetoderma is a rare disorder characterized by sac-like herniations and depressions in previously normal skin. On histologic examination, elastic fibers are destroyed by an inflammatory infiltrate. We describe a striking case of primary anetoderma and review the classification, differential diagnosis, causes, and treatment.
