Self-healing Juvenile Cutaneous Mucinosis

Arch Dermatol. 2009;145(2):211-212. doi:10.1001/archdermatol.2008.599

In an interesting report, Fabrizi and colleagues1 describe a case of multiple nodules in a child, which they present as an unusual example of proliferative fasciitis. What they failed to recognize is that proliferative fasciitis–type lesions are, in fact, part of a well-characterized syndrome in children, namely, self-healing juvenile cutaneous mucinosis, in which the subcutaneous and fascial involvement may be histologically indistinguishable from prototypical fasciitis.2-4
