Case of unilateral focal dermal hypoplasia (Goltz syndrome).
J Dermatol. 2008 Jan; 35(1):33-5.JD

Abstract

Focal dermal hypoplasia (FDH) is a rare multisystem condition in which developmental defects of the skin are associated with ocular, dental and skeletal abnormalities. Herein, we report an 8-year-old girl with FDH. Her body halves were asymmetric and she had linear cutaneous atrophy with yellow nodules on her extremities. Syndactylies of the third and fourth fingers of the right hand and second and third toes of the right foot were also observed. Histological examination revealed dermal hypoplasia and upward extension of the adipose tissue. Based on these observations, she was diagnosed with unilateral FDH.
