Abstract

Acanthosis nigricans is a hyperkeratotic lesion of the epidermis associated with insulin resistance. We present a diabetic patient with acanthosis nigricans at the insulin injection site on the abdominal wall. Neglecting rotation of sites for insulin injections and local hyperinsulinemia may play a role in the development of acanthosis nigricans.
