Lipoid Proteinosis: a case report in two siblings
Published Web Locationhttps://doi.org/10.5070/D3213022834
Lipoid proteinosis was first reported by Urbach and Wiethe in 1929. It is also known as hyalinosis cutis et mucosae or Urbach-Wiethe disease. It is a rare autosomal recessive disorder and characterized by the infiltration of hyaline material in the skin, oral cavity, larynx, and internal organs. Lipid proteinosis presents early in life. Hoarseness develops in infancy. The classic sign is beaded eyelid papules along the lid margin, also known as ‘Monilform Blepherosis’. In India about 30 cases have been reported to date. We report the following case because of its rarity in the Indian literature.
