Melorheostosis (MEL) is a rare benign bone disorder that can be associated with several anomalies, including vascular abnormalities, nevus sebaceus, unilateral nevoid telangiectasia, linear scleroderma and hypertrichosis. We report the case of a 6-year-old patient who showed an unusual co-occurrence of bone hyperostosis and different skin lesions affecting the same side of the body: MEL, verrucous epidermal nevus, connective tissue nevus, linear scleroderma-like disorder, hyperpigmentation and hypertrichosis. The spatial co-occurrence of these conditions made us speculate as to whether they originated from a common genetic mechanism or if their co-occurrence was completely accidental.
