Lipoid proteinosis (LP) is a very rare, autosomally recessive, inherited disease. It is also known as Urbach Wiethe disease or Hyalinosis cutis et mucosa. LP usually runs a benign, stable, and slowly progressing course. We present one LP case with additional unusual dermatologic involvement; verruca vulgaris was superimposed on papular lesions of LP. To our knowledge, this case is the first and only one described in the literature. In this presentation, we discuss the possibility of predisposition to Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) infections in LP.
