Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Familial poikiloderma-like cutaneous amyloidosis(FPLCA) is a rare, generalized but genetic dyschromic skin disorder characterized by amyloid deposits in dermis due to defective DNA repair secondary to sunlight damage. Clinically, it presents with diffuse brownish pigmentation with hypo-pigmented macules and many brownish scattered lichenoid papules with normal developmental milestones. The condition is autosomal dominant with incomplete penetrance. We are here reporting a rare familial case of FPLCA with a review of the literature.
