Hypertrichosis is an unusual but well-recognized genetic condition. Hypertrichosis may be generalized or limited to specific body areas, in which case it is usually not associated with other anomalies. Five previous cases of hypertrichosis cubiti have been reported, with short stature in 2 sibs being the only other associated abnormalities. We report on a child with hairy elbows, developmental delay, facial asymmetry, and delayed speech with normal parents. Our patient may represent severe expression of the hairy elbow syndrome or constitute a previously unrecognized syndrome.
