Atrophoderma Vermiculatum

Featured Cutis Video

Theresa Conologue, DO, Staff Dermatologist, Geisinger Medical Center, Danville, Pennsylvania, discusses atrophoderma vermiculatum (AV), a rare follicular disorder primarily affecting children with reticular or honeycomb atrophy of the cheeks and forehead.

Although these 3 variants have unique presentations and associations, they can all be frustratingly difficult to treat.
