The Authors report a case of a 4 years old female with a paucisymptomatic focal dermal hypoplasia. The patient presented, since her birth, growth retardation, linear and reticular, white coloured, atrophic lesions, localized on the trunk and limbs in association to areas of scarring alopecia of the scalp. The hystologic examination of an atrophic lesion demonstred a dermal hypoplasia, which included a low quote of adipose tissue. The laboratory findings, the neuropsychiatric, ophthalmologic, odontostomatologic and long bones radiologic evaluations did not show pathological signs.
