Atrophoderma Vermiculata

Description

Atrophoderma vermiculata, a form of keratosis pilaris atrophicans, typically presents in childhood with erythema and follicular keratotic papules that slowly progress to characteristic atrophy, which has been described as worm-eaten, reticular, or honeycomb, and occurs on the cheeks, preauricular area, and forehead. More rarely, the atrophy may extend to the upper lip, helices, ear lobes, and, in some cases, the limbs. The degree of inflammation, the presence of milia, and the extent of follicular plugs are variable (summary by Luria and Conologue, 2009).
