Özet

BackgroundPseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) is a heritable ectopic mineralization disorder affecting cutaneous, ocular, and cardiovascular systems, caused by mutations in the ABCC6 gene. PXE presents with a marked clinical and genetic heterogeneity. Furthermore, heterozygous carriers may present with limited histopathological features. This study was conducted to investigate a patient with PXE and her family members clinically, histopathologically, and genetically.
