Abstract

BACKGROUND: Acanthosis nigricans has been classified in different ways. All classifications depend on the clinical picture and the association with other conditions. OBJECTIVE: We report a case of acanthosis nigricans in a patient with Kabuki syndrome. This syndrome is characterized by five main manifestations: typical facial features, post natal growth deficiency, skeletal abnormalities, dermatoglyphic abnormalities, and mild to moderate mental retardation. CONCLUSION: Our case may suggest that acanthosis nigricans could be associated with Kabuki syndrome.
