Abstract

A 58-year-old diabetic woman with necrobiosis lipoidica diabeticorum demonstrated lesions with raised, prominent borders. These areas were found on biopsy to have transepidermal elimination of elastic fibers. We present this case as a unique finding and review the characteristics and possible mechanisms of transepidermal elimination.
