In this issue, Assmann et al.  describe the Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome in a 5-year-old boy who showed multiple yellowish or skin-colored papules and plaques involving the right flank and thigh in a segmental arrangement. The diagnosis of Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome was confirmed by X-ray examination revealing osteopoikilosis of the right hand and the right foot. The authors emphasize that such early onset of cutaneous and bony lesions of the disorder is quite unusual.
