Abstract

Urbach-Wiethe disease (lipoid proteinosis) is an autosomal recessive disorder that is characterized by a general thickening of the skin and mucous membranes. We report the case of a 22-year-old woman with lipoid proteinosis who presented with hoarseness, poor dentition, and skin lesions, and we discuss the management of this rare disease.
