The relationship between pregnancy and diseases of the elastic fibers, such as pseudoxanthoma elasticum, cutis laxa, and anetoderma, is discussed in this article. Dermatologists and other physicians must be aware that these problems may be present in pregnant women and must also know how to counsel those who suffer from these diseases because they can have severe manifestations and consequences during or after this period for both the pregnant mother and her offspring.
