Abstract

Hypomelanosis of Ito (HI) is a neurocutaneous syndrome characterized by hypopigmented cutaneous lesions and extracutaneous manifestations frequently affecting the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system. Dysmorphic features, dental, ophthalmic, gastrointestinal, cardiac, and renal abnormalities are described in a minority of patients. The authors describe a 4‑month‑old infant having HI with unusual pulmonary hypoplasia that has not been reported so far.
