    Fibroelastolytic papulosis is proposed as the diagnostic term for cases previously identified as pseudoxanthoma elasticum-like papillary dermal elastolysis and white fibrous papulosis of the neck. Clinical presentation of fibroelastolytic papulosis is asymptomatic to mildly pruritic whitish-yellow papules that may coalesce into cobblestonepatterned plaques resembling pseudoxanthoma elasticum. Histology is characterized by normal, decreased, or absent elastic fibers in the papillary dermis sometimes accompanied by a thickening of collagen fibers. We report a 60-year-old woman with flesh to yellowish colored papules with cobblestone appearance, which were histologically consistent with fibroelastolytic papulosis.
