Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Hypertrichosis of the elbow region may be the only abnormality in hypertrichosis cubiti (hairy elbow syndrome). Only 6 cases have been reported; 2 Amish sibs also had additional short stature and, in the most recent case report, a patient had asymmetry of the face, generalized hypotonia, ptosis, epicanthic folds, highly arched palate, and delayed growth and development. The child reported here also had asymmetry of facial growth, ptosis, delayed speech development, and hypertrichosis in a patchy distribution which included the elbow regions, face, trunk, and thighs. There was no family history of hypertrichosis, and the karyotype of cultured fibroblasts was normal in the skin of an area of hypertrichosis. These patients appear to have a distinct condition compared to other hypertrichosis syndromes.
