Striae distensae (SD) are very common dermatological condition produced as a result of overstretching of skin leading to depressed linear irreversible atrophic dermal scars. We report a case of oral corticosteroid induced extensive striae distensae in a patient with nephrotic syndrome, who developed sudden bulging and fluid collection in these atrophic skin scars during the course of disease. Laboratory analysis of aspirated fluid from the oedematous SD revealed it to be transudate in nature. Thus it was concluded that, as part of anasarca the extracellular fluid got preferentially accumulated within the weaker atrophic scarred skin of striae.
