Abstract

Lipoid proteinosis is a rare congenital disorder that can present with a variety of symptoms. A nineteen year old Indian male with dysmorphic features was admitted with a twelve year history of recurrent ulcerations over the upper limbs and oral cavity. Although the initial presentation was strongly suggestive of a congenital immune-deficiency syndrome, all investigations for immunodeficiency disorders were negative. Subsequent evaluation yielded a diagnosis of lipoid proteinosis.
