Michelin tire baby syndrome--a case report and literature review.

Author information

  • 1Department of Pediatrics, King Abdul Aziz University Hospital, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.


Michelin tire syndrome is described in a two month old infant of Filipino-Saudi parents. The infant had generalized excessive folding of skin and facial dysmorphism. The skin biopsy showed excessive adipose tissue in reticular dermis, papillary dermis and around adnexa. Spontaneous partial improvement in skin folding was noted on follow up. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case ever reported locally of Michelin tire.
