Elephantiasis is an uncommon disease in the United States. We present a case of nonfilarial elephantiasis nostras verrucosa in a 14-year-old girl. Most commonly, the upper and lower extremities are affected; the disease, in this patient, was confined to the buttock. The patient has done well after excision and primary closure. The patient is currently undergoing pressure therapy 1 year after surgery. She has no evidence of recurrence. We present this case and review the literature.
