Abstract

We describe a case of Pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) in a 14-year-old girl. This case is especially rare because of its association with carotid rete mirabile (CRM). Only three cases have been reported previously in the literature. Although the relation between P. elasticum and carotid rete mirabile is unclear, both disorders are believed to be major risk factors for cerebrovascular disease.
