7 Scopus citations


Focal dermal hypoplasia or Goltz syndrome is a rare clinical entity, usually presenting in early childhood as a mix of ectodermal and mesodermal anomalies. Previously reported cases have included skeletal lesions of the long bones, metacarpals, metatarsals and pelvis. We present a case with a vertebral lesion causing neurologic deficit. A discussion of the history of the syndrome is included as well as detailed histologic description.
