A rare genetic skin disorder with characteristics of congenital alopecia and palmoplantar hyperkeratosis. It is usually associated with cataracts, progressive sclerodactyly and pseudo-ainhum. To date the syndrome has been reported in two families (seven affected individuals) plus an additional sporadic patient was likely affected by the same condition. Usually presents during infancy with manifestations of fading of facial, scalp and body hair within the first months of life without subsequent re-growth. Body and facial keratosis pilaris are additional features that appear in the following years. Skin thickening of palms and soles develops during infancy and may have an unusual pattern affecting the two sides of fingers and palms, but usually sparing the palmar surfaces.
