Papular mucinosis (scleromyxedema/lichen myxedematosus) is a rare disease
characterized by a symmetric distribution of erythematous to yellowish
papules and/or papules, most commonly involving the face, neck and arms
 accompanied by diffuse skin thickening in some cases. In the diffuse
sclerotic variant, some authors exclusively reserve the term "scleromyxedema"
in light of its clinical resemblance to systemic scleroderma .
