To the Editor.—  A patient was seen in our clinic who had developed eczema craquelé on an area of traumatic denervation.

Report of a Case.—  A 52-year-old man came to our clinic with eczema, craquelé on the anterior tibial surface of his left lower leg. He had had this condition for one month. He had been in a car accident three months earlier and had had a deep laceration on the middle part of his left leg, proximal to the involved area.On examination, the affected area had decreased sensation to pinprick and was extremely dry and red, with superficial fissures in an irregular reteform pattern. There were no other areas of dry skin.Using the Wada method, as modified by Papa and Kligman,1 a sweat test was performed after the affected area was treated for one week
