A case of extensive skin atrophy and hyperpigmentation of the right lower leg following eight months of plaster cast application in a boy is described. The differential diagnosis of such lesions are considered and the reported skin complications of casting are listed. This entity is similar to the "stump edema syndrome" and is probably a variant of stasis dermatitis.
