Description Dermatoporosis is an important clinical condition leading to chronic skin fragility. It can be separated into primary and secondary subtypes, with the latter induced by medical drugs and environmental factors. Dermatoporosis can be classified into 4 major stages with increasing morbidity and mortality with the advanced stages. Its aetiology has been related to the epidermal hyalusome. Dermatoporosis is a cause of mortality in the intensive care unit and should be known not only by a dermatologist but another medical speciality as well. Prevention is of major importance. Therapeutic options are limited but available.
