Malignant atrophic papulosis is a rare disorder characterized by pathognomonic cutaneous lesions that consist of infarctive thrombosis. Visceral involvement often occurs; the gastrointestinal tract and the central nervous system are most frequently involved. Malignant atrophic papulosis has not been previously described in an AIDS patient. We describe a 58-year-old homosexual man with AIDS who developed typical cutaneous lesions of malignant atrophic papulosis. No visceral involvement has been detected in 2 years. (J Am Acad Dermatol 1998;38:852-6.)
