Localized acquired pseudoxanthoma elasticum is a rare disorder which has similar clinical and histopathology characteristics to the inherited form of the disease except the lack of vascular and ocular involvement. Herein a clinical case of a localized acquired cutaneous pseudoxanthoma elasticum after treatment with Striadril complex-containing anti-wrinkle cream is described. The possible causative relationship between the application of the cosmeceutical and the coincidental disease development is discussed.
