Patients with Birt-Hogg-Dube syndrome have an increased risk of developing hamartomas of the pilosebaceous unit, renal tumors of various types, lung cysts, and spontaneous pneumothorax. We present the case of a 54-year-old woman with a long history of whitish papules in the central region of the face and a family history of similar lesions. Biopsy and genetic study revealed a new mutation of the gene involved in Birt-Hogg-Dube syndrome.
