Author information

  • 1Department of Dermatology, Combined Military Hospital, Abbottabad.


Rothmund-Thomson syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive poikilodermatous disorder with various inconsistent features. Clinical features of two siblings are described, which raised only just cosmetic concerns for the parents. The parents were counseled and advised regular follow-up for early detection of complications including malignancies and to protect the children from sun exposure by using broad spectrum sun screens and physical barriers.
