Abstract

Cutis laxa is grouped with the other hyperelastic skin conditions, but it shows almost total lack of skin elasticity. Numerous other medical and surgical conditions may coexist with the skin problem, since it is a generalized affliction of the supporting connective tissues. Our patient had cutis laxa proved by skin biopsy. All surgical procedures were done without any wound complications. He had many associated medical conditions and so served as an excellent opportunity to review the condition of cutis laxa.
