Anetoderma (chicken pox scars)

Anetoderma is a localized laxity of the skin with herniation or outpouching resulting from abnormal dermal elastic tissue.[2] Anetoderma comes in three types:

  • Primary anetoderma
    • Jadassohn–Pellizzari anetoderma is a benign condition with focal loss of dermal elastic tissue.[3] 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.[1]
    • Schweninger–Buzzi anetoderma is a cutaneous condition characterized by loss of dermal elastic tissue.[1]
  • Secondary anetoderma
  • Familial anetoderma
