Clinical and morphological features of elastolytic granulomas

Cover Page

Abstract


The authors discuss current data on the classification, etiology and pathogenesis, clinical picture, pathologic features and treatment options of elastolytic granulomas (EGs). The authors disclose main aspects of elastolysis and elastophagocytosis development. Three cases of diseases from the EG group - actinic granuloma and annular elastolytic giant cell granuloma -are described for the first time in the Russian literature.
