Abstract


BACKGROUND: Dermatobroma is a benign brohistiocytic tumor of unknown origin and has varied
clinical and histological presentations. Atrophic dermatobroma is a rare variant characterised by at
and depressible surface and is often misdiagnosed.
CASE CHARACTERISTICS: A 52year old woman presented with dark depressed plaques with raised edges over right shoulder,
left upper arm and right breast. Histopathological examination correlates with diagnosis of atrophic dermatobroma.
CONCLUSION: We report this case to highlight the occurrence of atrophic variant of dermatobromas multiple in number and
also because of their large size.
