Two cases of D-penicillamine-induced elastosis perforans serpiginosa.
Elastosis perforans serpiginosa (EPS) results from changes in both elastic and collagen fibers within the dermis, resulting in a foreign body reaction with transepidermal elimination.
Elastosis perforans serpiginosa is rare and affects both males and females without racial or geographical preferences; it usually occurs in young adults, even if it can also be observed in childhood or during old age.

Finally, perforating disorders with transepidermal elimination of elastin (elastosis perforans serpiginosa, perforating folliculitis, perforating pseudoxanthoma elasticum) may resemble HLE, but these lesions contain neutrophils and histiocytes with fewer lymphocytes and typically do not demonstrate vacuolar interface changes (Figure 7, B).
It is usually very painful, with the exception of a necrotising form known as scleromalacia perforans, which is painless and occurs in patients with longstanding rheumatoid arthritis.
This is thought to be an isotopic response that describes the occurrence of a new skin disorder at the site of another lesion that has already healed and is unrelated to primary dermatosis.6 KD is one of the perforating skin diseases that represents a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by transepithelial elimination of dermal structures.10 Primary perforating disorders include Kyrle's disease, elastosis perforans serpiginosa, perforating folliculitis and reactive perforating collagenosis.11
* Scleromalacia perforans: In patients with long-standing RA, the sclera becomes extremely thin and develops a blue-grey colour after the inflammation of repeated episodes of necrotising scleritis subsides.
Location may provide another clue to etiology: Ulcers located on the heel, the outside of the foot, or between the toes tend to be associated with vascular disease, while ulcers with surrounding callus, such as the classic mal perforans ulcer on the metatarsal head, are neuropathic.
