A 74-year-old man with pain and atrophy of the left leg
We describe the clinical and laboratory findings in a man whose painfull left leg presented a local atrophy with a sclerotic aspect of the skin and a spotty erythema. Serological testing revealed a positive immunological reaction to Borrelia. EMG demonstrated the presence of an axonal polyneuropathy. Histopathological findings suggested the diagnosis of acrodermatitis chronica atrophicans. Unfortunately, the antibiotic therapy remained unsuccesfull. A short review of literature is provided.
