The article presents the diagnosis and treatment of a 46-year-old man who acquired perforating dermatosis associated with diabetes and renal failure.

The patient was given retinoid therapy for four months and his pruritus substantially reduced while rash improved over 80%, but he died by severe cardiac disease.
