Herbal Remedies for Poikiloderma-Like Cutaneous Amyloidosis


DNA or called deoxyribonucleic acid is hereditary material present in the human body and almost in every organism. Nearly all the cells found in the human body have the same DNA and a small number of mitochondria can be found too. DNA stores information and helps in controlling the cells. The transmission of the information from the mother to the daughter cell is known as vertical gene transfer. It is one of the important components of the body that gives us the features of our parents. The mutation in DNA can result in different health disorders and one of these disorders is poikiloderma-like cutaneous amyloidosis. In this article, we are going to discuss this more in detail and its treatment through herbal medicine.

What is poikiloderma-like cutaneous amyloidosis?

Poikiloderma-like cutaneous amyloidosis is a rare genetic dyschromic skin disorder that is characterized by the deposition of amyloid in the dermis. This is caused due to defective DNA repair which is secondary to sunlight damage. Clinically it is presented with a diffuse brownish pigmentation and also hypopigmented macules.  People with this genetic problem are way too sensitive to Ultraviolet rays and this causes damage to the skin.

The first-ever case of poikiloderma-like cutaneous amyloidosis was seen in Morishma from Japan in the year 1970. There are two poikiloderma-like cutaneous amyloidoses including the Acquired and Congenital types.
