Striae Distensae (StriaeAtrophicans, Striae Gravidarum, Stretch Marks)
Atrophic striae occur under several circumstances. They are so common as to be considered physiologic during adolescence. The microscopic features reveal a combination of findings showing epidermal atrophy and dermal scar formation. The cause of the lesions is usually apparent from the patient’s age or by obtaining a pertinent history. On rare occasions, they can be an indication of underlying adrenal cortex dysfunction.
