Abstract
Incontinentia pigmenti (IP) is a rare multisystemic ectodermal disorder, which is characterized by vesicular, verrucous, and pigmented cutaneous lesions, and is frequently associated with various developmental defects of the eye, CNS, teeth, hair, and nail. It is regarded as an X-linked dominant genetic disorder. We recently experienced a case with IP, who presented with irregular, reticular, and slate-gray to brown colored pigmentation on the whole body at birth. Skin lesions were much improved by 6 month of age. The mother of this infant had the history of same cutaneous lesions in her neonatal period, suggesting that these lesions had familial tendency.
Key Words: Incontinentia pigmenti, Bloch-Siemens-Sulzberger syndrome, X-linked dominant inheritance
