  • Warburg Micro Syndrome 3

    OMIM : 58 Warburg Micro syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive syndrome characterized by microcephaly, microphthalmia, microcornea, congenital cataracts, optic atrophy, cortical dysplasia, in particular corpus callosum hypoplasia, severe mental retardation, spastic diplegia, and hypogonadism (summary by[…][]

  • Porphyria

    […] of stature Abdomen - Splenomegaly, upper right quadrant tenderness, positive Murphy sign Cutaneous lesions include the following: Subepidermal bullous lesions that worsen[] […] with erythema, edema, and erosions that eventually lead to facial scarring, or more chronic (PCT, VP, HCP), with skin fragility, blistering, and scarring, often over the backs[] Congenital erythropoietic porphyria (CEP) Diaper - Pink-stained or dark-stained urine Hair - Hypertrichosis, alopecia Eyes - Keratoconjunctivitis, vision loss Growth - Shortness[]

  • Becker Nevus Syndrome

    H&E (10 10) Discussion Becker naevus (BN) was first described by Becker in 1949, as two cases where hypertrichosis and hyperpigmentation occurred on upper back unilaterally[] Involvement of the upper back and scapula with hypertrichosis was noted in the elder sibling. The remainder of the physical examination was normal.[] One study reported a prevalence of 0.52% in men aged 17-26 years. [ 4 ] Presentation [ 1, 2 ] A large brown area, sometimes covering half the upper back or chest.[]

  • Congenital Non-Neoplastic Nevus

    Examination revealed 32 x 10 cm naevus from back of scalp to upper back, scarring alopecia in upper part, parallel folds of skin in middle part and hypertrophy and hypertrichosis[]

  • Hepatoerythropoietic Porphyria

    One child with CEP presented with typical infancy-onset blistering, photosensitivity, red urine, and erythrodontia, with hypertrichosis of the upper arms and back.[] The other child of CEP presented with childhood-onset blistering, mutilation, and hypertrichosis on the face.[]

  • Virilization

    Hirsutism • Excessive growth of thick terminal hair in a male distribution in women (upper lip, chin, chest, back, lower abdomen, thigh, forearm) • Most common presentation[] […] of endocrine disease. • DD: Hypertrichosis, which is generalised excessive growth of vellus hair. • The aetiology is androgen excess 4.[]

  • Neurocutaneous Melanocytosis

    The maximum diameter was measured to be 33 cm, extending from the upper back to the left thigh, posteriorly.[] It had a smooth surface, with localized hypertrichosis over the left thigh.[] There were a total of 20 satellite lesions distributed over the arms, forearms, upper trunk, thighs, and legs, beyond the border of the main nevi.[]

  • Secondary Amenorrhea

    Hypertrichosis (excessive growth of hair on the extremities, head, and back), which is common in some families, is differentiated from true hirsutism, which is characterized[] […] by excess hair on the upper lip and chin and between the breasts.[]

  • Trisomy 9

    […] of the upper back Teeth late to emerge Eczema Anhidrosis (does not sweat) Simian crease on right hand Valgus Over-riding pinkie toe Clinodactyly (pinkie fingers bend inwards[] […] mesial temporal lobes of the brain reasing the possibility of mesial temporal sclerosis Hearing Loss Chronic sinus infections Reflux and vomiting (mostly resolved) Mild hypertrichosis[]

  • Growth Delay-Hydrocephaly-Lung Hypoplasia Syndrome

    (abnormal hair density and length) Hirsutisme dorsal (hairy back) Synophrys (abundant hair between the eyebrows) Congenital dislocations/Skeletal BOS Posture [1] Scoliosis[] (curvature of the spine) Fixed constrictors of the upper limbs Rhizomele humerus (shortening of the humerus and femur)Absence of distal interphalangeale crease from fingers[] […] lead to glaucoma) Thick Cornea (corneal thickness is an important factor in accurately diagnosing eye pressure) Excavatie (excavation of optic disc) Hair/Skin Low hairline Hypertrichosis[]
