Restrictive dermopathy (RD, OMIM #275210) is a rare genodermatosis, caused by ZMPSTE24 or, less frequently, LMNA mutations.1 It is characterized by an extremely poor prognosis resulting in stillbirth or early neonatal death.1,2 Clinical features comprise prematurity, intrauterine growth retardation, thin rigid skin with lacerations at flexural regions, facial dysmorphism and joint ankyloses. We report the first Italian case due to a ZMPSTE24 homozygous recurrent mutation. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
