PINEDA-PINEDA, JA  y  PEREZ-ELIZONDO, Antonio D. Dermatosis neglecta: simulation, a reality.  A propos of a case. Rev. argent. dermatol. [online]. 2012, vol.93, n.3. ISSN 1851-300X.

The neglecta dermatosis is an almost unknown pathology. It is caused of lack of hygienic measures, generally subsequent to the pain to increase an existent trouble on the skin (ex: acne, postsurgical scars, radiotherapy, scars, keloids, etc) presenting plates covered with thick crusts, with oily flakes and hyper keratosis pigmentation, which disappears with energetic washing or cleaning with alcohol or acetone, leaving a healthy skin. We present the case of a 20 years old patient who visited the dermatological department of the La Liga Contra el Cancer in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. The first time that he visited the doctor´s office was for acne and he was prescribed with benzoyl peroxide and sunscreen. Two months later the patient came with his skin hyper pigmented and covered with thick oily crusts which disappeared with energetic cleansing with alcohol. When asked, the patient answered that he did not wash his face because he did not want to worsen his acne skin. Then we made the diagnostic as neglecta dermatosis.

Palabras clave : Neglecta dermatosis; Crusts; Hygiene.
