Abstract:

Background.

Cutaneous mucinosis can be a primary or secondary reaction, as seen in connective tissue diseases, lupus erythematosus, metabolic diseases, paraproteinemias, and even malignant lymphomas. Objective.

Focal cutaneous mucinosis usually arises as a result of the dysfunction of fibroblasts in a local area. It may arrive from various mechanical stimulations. Methods.

We presented an unusual heretofore unreported case of a polypoid mucinosis. Conclusion.

The local mucin deposition in this patient was considered as a secondary change from frequent friction by clothes.
