Abstract

Papular mucinosis (PM, scleromyxoedema) is a rare dermatologic disease. It is histologically characterized by a focal dermal deposit of mucin within the skin. Although PM is accepted as an idiopathic disease in most cases, some authors argued that it may be a cutaneous manifestation of a systemic disease. Here, we describe a 68-year-old male kidney transplantation recipient with a complaint of intractable itching sensation on the forehead. We diagnosed the skin lesions as PM, which were improved after cyclosporine dose reduction.
