Follicular atrophoderma in association with congenital pseudarthrosis of the tibia.


Follicular atrophoderma has always been associated with other congenital malformations including, Conradi-Hünermann syndrome, Bazex's syndrome and keratosis palmaris et plantaris dissipata. Congenital pseudarthrosis of the tibia has usually been associated with neurofibromatosis. We report a case of follicular atrophoderma in association with congenital pseudarthrosis of the tibia: a previously unreported association with, in our case, a good outcome for the pseudarthrosis.
