Abstract

A 41 year male, diabetic on treatment presented with persistent erythema and, "taut" skin over neck and back since 1 year. The lesions showed symmetric and gradual progression. There was no history of prior sore throat. On examination effected skin was erythematous, woody hard and unpinchable. Scleredema diabeticorum (diutinum), although sharing clinical and historical features with Scleredema adultorum has no prodromal infection, is more extensive and affected individuals are characteristically obese, middle aged diabetics who often have accompanying microangiopathies and macroangiopathies. Recognition of scleredema by the physician has prognostic and therapeutic implications in the management of the coexisting diabetes.
