Elastosis perforans serpiginous (EPS) is a rare perforating disorder characterized by trans epidermal elimination of fragmented elastic fibres.The cutaneous features include asymptomatic hyperkeratotic papules. Here we present a case of 27-year old female presented with hyperkeratotic papules with central depression arranged transversely in a serpiginous fashion on front of the laxed skin of the neck region. The histopathological features are consistent with the features of EPS on Cutis Laxa. Elastosis perforans
serpiginosa in Acquired cutis laxa has not been reported very rarely, hence this case has been reported.
