Abstract

Abstract: A 10-year-old boy developed cutis laxa while receiving isoniazid therapy; no systemic manifestations occurred. There are several well-documented cases of acquired cutis laxa. We propose a classification of the elastolysis syndromes, including inherited, neonatal, and acquired forms of cutis laxa.
