Acrodermatitis chronic atrophicans and sclerodermiform skin changes in Borrelia infection.


A female patient with acrodermatitis chronica atrophicans and widespread sclerodermiform skin lesions with a high IgG antibody titer against Borrelia burgdorferi is presented. The rapid improvement after high-dose penicillin G therapy and the course of the Borrelia antibody titer suggest a persistence of the causative organism.
