Cutis laxa is a rare disease that may be either inherited or acquired. The acquired form is rarer than the inherited form. Pathogenesis of this disease is largely unknown. Two cases of acquired cutis laxa are reported here and neither of them had any systemic involvement or any history of drug intake. One of them had localized disease with history of preceding cutaneous inflammation. The other patient with generalized lesion lacked any history of preceding illness. The patient with localized lesion was treated satisfactorily by reconstructive surgery. The other patient had generalized involvement, for which no satisfactory treatment could be offered.
