This kind of wasting syndrome is generally not seen today; however, other complications may occur. Carcinoma may occur, particularly on the buttocks. These cancers appear to have a particularly bad prognosis, possibly because of the local immunodeficiency caused by the long-lasting inflammation and scarring. Except for the common paraclinical signs of inflammation, such as elevated sedimentation rate, low serum iron and elevation of alpha-2 and gamma globulin, the patients are however usually in good general health and without biological repercussions, even in cases of long-lasting severe disease.
