Dermatosis Neglecta - Difficult Diagnostic Suspicion Condition
Dermatosis neglecta is characterized by accumulation of sebum, sweat, keratin and impurities due to inadequate skin cleansing, hyperesthesia and immobility secondary to trauma and/or surgery. Recognizing this condition avoids unnecessary, aggressive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. We report a case of dermatosis neglecta in a patient with neglected hygiene in an area of previous surgery.
