To the Editor:
I would like to record that I have recently seen a case of elastosis perforans serpiginosa associated with osteogenesis imperfecta in a European boy aged 19 years. This is the second case to be recorded in the literature. The first case was described in the Archives of Dermatology, 89:342-344 (Feb) 1964, by Drs. William B. Reed and Joseph W. Pidgeon of California.Another interesting observation about my case is that the lesions were extensive and symmetrical.In the Archives of Dermatology for August, 1963, p 215, Dr. Warren L. Macaulay describes a case of elastosis perforans serpiginosa in which the lesions were also symmetrically disposed.
