† A man displayed the acute inflammatory cutaneous manifestations and the late "incontinentia pigmentilike" lesions of Conradi-Huenermann subgroup B of chondrodysplasia punctata. The case appears as unique in the literature in that, to our knowledge, both kinds of skin changes have been described only in newborns or early in infancy.
