Abstract

Reactive perforating collagenosis (RPC) is one of a range of essential perforating disorders. Two types have been recognized: the childhood or inherited form, and the adult or acquired form. Acquired RPC is usually associated with systemic disease, especially diabetes mellitus and/or renal failure. Lesions of acquired perforating collagenosis are usually smaller than 1 cm, but lesions of the giant variant of acquired perforating collagenosis are larger than 2 cm. We present a case of the giant variant of acquired perforating collagenosis, which has not previously been documented in Korea.
