Poikiloderma refers to clinically morphologically defined, aetiologically different, congenital or acquired, varicoloured clinical pictures with circumscript or diffuse atrophy, small spotted to reticular hyper- and depigmentation, telangiectasia and erythema. The term "poikiloderma" also covers clinical pictures that can be classified as so-called pre-ageing syndromes.
