Acrogeria


Presentation

  • Since the glycosaminoglycans and hydroxyproline excreted in the urine were not increased, we speculate that a localized rather than a systemic abnormality may be present in acrogeria.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • There is hyperpigmentation present irregularly which is the increased color of the skin which is probably present as patches of hyper-colored skin. Along with this fine hair is seen to be present on the skin in almost all the cases of Acrogeria.[epainassist.com]
  • Acrogeria was originally described by Gottron in 1941, when he noticed premature cutaneous aging localized on the hands and feet in two brothers, which were present ever since birth.[en.wikipedia.org]

Workup

  • Diagnosis of Acrogeria Since there are no molecular workups that can aid in the diagnoses of Acrogeria, it’s mainly and exclusively just a clinical diagnosis- a proper history including family history and clinical examination.[epainassist.com]

Treatment

  • Treatment - Acrogeria- gottron type There is currently no specific treatment available for either of these so-called progeroid syndromes.[checkorphan.org]
  • The complications of Acrogeria, Gottron type may include: Severe skin abnormalities Difficulty in walking Decreased quality of life Complications may occur with or without treatment, and in some cases, due to treatment also.[dovemed.com]

  • What are the treatments for Acrogeria- Gottron Type? Since Acrogeria- Gottron Type is a genetic condition, there is no cure. Treatment is based on the type and severity of each patient and is very individualized.[patientworthy.com]
  • Treatment of Acrogeria As of now, there is no known treatment for Acrogeria. However, this isn’t a major problem considering that Acrogeria has an excellent prognosis.[epainassist.com]

  • However, this concept is still not widely accepted in the medical literature. 9 As these are very rare syndromes, all sharing an aspect of ageing skin similar to progeria, they are also at times called progeroid syndromes. 10 The etiology of acrogeria[scielo.br]
