Pseudoxanthoma elasticum is an inherited connective tissue disorder affecting skin, ocular and vascular systems. We report an unusual case with cutaneous lesions simulating PXE localized to the periumbilical region with no systemic involvement. Two entities having localized PXE-like skin changes namely perforating calcific elastosis and papillary dermal elastolysis are discussed.
