Anetoderma (also known as "Anetoderma maculosa," "Anetoderma maculosa cutis," "Atrophia maculosa cutis," and "Macular atrophy") is a localized laxity of the skin with herniation or outpouching resulting from abnormal dermal elastic tissue. Anetoderma comes in three types:
- Primary anetoderma
- Jadassohn–Pellizzari anetoderma is a benign condition with focal loss of dermal elastic tissue. Jadassohn-Pellizzari is one of two major classifications of primary anetoderma, the other being Schweninger–Buzzi anetoderma. The difference between the two is that Jadassohn–Pellizzari anetoderma is preceded by inflammatory lesions.
- Schweninger–Buzzi anetoderma is a cutaneous condition characterized by loss of dermal elastic tissue.
- Secondary anetoderma
- Familial anetoderma
