ABSTRACT: Endocrinologic disorders occasionally manifest themselves by cutaneous abnormalities. In some instances, these alterations are the most prominent complaints of the patient. It is then important that the physician is able to recognize them as the manifestation of the endocrinologic disease. In this review, we describe the main cutaneous lesions occurring in endocrinopathy, like troubles of the skin pigmentation [melasma, acanthosis nigricans, Addison's disease, Cushing's syndrome, vitiligo], generalized or pretibial myxedema, acne and androgen excess, hirsutism. Where known, we try to approach the physiopathologic mechanisms that account for cutaneous changes. Additionally, some treatments are discussed.
