Author information

Tehran University of Medical sciences, Razi Hospital, Tehran, Iran.


Lipoid proteinosis is a rare autosomal recessive disorder; it presents in early childhood with hoarseness, skin infiltration and thickening with beaded papules on eyelid margins, and facial acneiform or pock-like scars. Although 250 cases have been reported until now, the occurrence of disease in siblings is very rare. We report three familial cases of lipoid proteinosis involving a brother and sister and their nephew.
