ABSTRACT A young girl is reported suffering from multiple congenital anomalies typical of Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome, in association with cutaneous lesions of piebaldism and occipital poliosis. Clinical characteristics of both entities are described and cutaneous manifestations of Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome are reviewed. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case reporting such an association.

    ABSTRACT: Rubinstein–Taybi syndrome is characterized by the presence of a peculiar facies, mental retardation, and broad thumbs and great toes. Several associated cutaneous abnormalities have been reported with this syndrome. Ulerythema ophryogenes is a form of follicular keratosis associated occasionally with other ectodermal defects and congenital anomalies. We describe a 9-year-old child with Rubinstein–Taybi syndrome and ulerythema ophryogenes. This association has not been described previously to our knowledge.

    ABSTRACT: Although traditionally known as "white forelock," poliosis circumscripta, defined as a localized patch of white hair in a group of hair follicles, can involve any hairy area on the body including the scalp, eyebrows, and eyelashes. Microscopically, poliosis demonstrates either decreased or absent melanin and/or melanocytes in the hair bulbs of the affected hair follicles. Classically, poliosis is known to occur in the setting of several genetic syndromes including piebaldism, Waardenburg, and tuberous sclerosis. In addition, poliosis has been described in association with various acquired conditions. These include inflammatory conditions, benign and malignant neoplastic entities that are mainly melanocytic, medications, and others. In this review, we aim to describe the different conditions where poliosis may be encountered, with the aim of helping the clinician to better evaluate any patient presenting with poliosis.
