Cutaneous features of alcoholic pellagra (1)

Cutaneous features of alcoholic pellagra. Note the swollen, roughened, and mottled pigmentation of the skin. In this patient, pellagra was due to a niacin deficiency brought on by malnutrition, which was exacerbated by this alcoholic patient’s poor nutritional intake.
