Malignant atrophic papulosis is a rare disorder characterized by
pathognomonic cutaneous lesions that consist of infarctive thrombosis.
Visceral involvement often occurs; the gastrointestinal tract and the
central nervous system are most frequently involved. Malignant atrophic
papulosis has not been previously described in an AIDS patient. We
describe a 58-year-old homosexual man with AIDS who developed typical
cutaneous lesions of malignant atrophic papulosis. No visceral
involvement has been detected in 2 years.
