[Association of an epithelial dermoid with alopecia and a sebaceous verrucose nevus: hologynic hereditary malformations]

Ophthalmologica. 1985;190(2):67-71. doi: 10.1159/000309495.
[Article in French]


The association of alopecia with a sebaceous verrucose nevus and an epibulbar lipodermoid is a rare condition (8 cases reported in the literature). Only girls suffer from this disease; this suggests a hologynic heredity, as in the case of Aicardi's syndrome. The authors present a new observation of a 7-year-old girl who exhibits all the characteristics of this new syndrome.
