Abstract

We describe a case of a four year-old boy, with congenital ectopia lentis et pupillae, who developed patchy unilateral depigmentation of the skin, hair and lashes. The association between ectopia lentis et pupillae and transillumination of the iris is well documented in the literature, but it has never been reported with skin hypopigmentation.
