A peculiar atrophic skin disorder occurred in five Japanese children. The characteristic features are (1) a depression of the skin resulting from the loss of subcutaneous fat which involves the most part of the abdomen and the neighboring regions, (2) centrifugal enlargement of the depressed area, (3) slightly reddish and scaly change in the surrounding area, (4) the onset before the age of 3 years, and (5) no significant abnormalities in any other skin surface or organs. From these features the name "lipodystrophia centrifugalis abdominalis infantilis" is proposed for this disorder.
