|Lipoid proteinosis is considered as a rare disorder with autosomal recessive pattern of inheritance. Patients affected with lipoid proteinosis can show multiple clinical manifestations as progressive hyaline material deposition in the skin, mucous membrane and different organs of the body. The classic manifestation is onset in infancy with a hoarse cry due to laryngeal infiltration. In the present report, we describe a 41 years old Saudi male with a known medical history of GERD and epilepsy. He shows symptoms of a hoarse voice since infancy, beading of the papules around the eyelids, acneiform scars on the face and extremities and thickened oral mucosa including the tongue and buccal mucosa. Oral mucosa biopsy was done for him, according to the biopsy result and clinical presentation, the patient was diagnosed as a case of lipoid proteinosis. The objective of the present work is to report on middle adulthood male with classical manifestations of lipoid proteinosis, which is largely uncharacterized in Arab population.|
