Infantile Systemic Hyalinosis (ISH) is a rare inherited disease that is found among some families in Arab region where consguinity is not uncommon. Patients with ISH have distinctive clinical features that label them as difficult intubations. This includes limited mouth opening, restricted neck movement, protrusion of the mandible, and gingival hyperplasia.
