CONGENITAL SKIN DISORDERS Cutaneous Asthenia Cutaneous asthenia is a congenital hereditary collagen defect in humans and animals that is highlighted by fragile, hyperextensible skin. The condition is analogous to Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), an eponym for eight variations (EDS I–VIII) of this disorder in humans. Other names include dermatosparaxis and dermatosparaxis and collageneous tissue dysplasia in sheep, cats, sheep, and cattle, a condition similar to EDS I in humans.

Specific collagenase enzymes (metalloproteinases) from macrophages, fibroblasts, and epidermal cells cleave type I, II, III, X, and XIII collagens. Balancing the degradation of collagen are tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMPs). Cytokines and the ECM play an important role in this process. Nonfunc- tional collagen fibers are broken down by these proteolytic enzymes within the ECM. Collagen deposition is directly related to the tensile strength of a wound. Three weeks after injury, the scar has 20% of its final strength.
