Abstract

ABSTRACT
Kindler syndrome (KS) is a rare autosomal recessive genodermatosis characterized by trauma-induced blisters,
progressive poikiloderma, photosensitivity and diffuse cutaneous atrophy. This syndrome involves skin and mucous
membranes with radiological changes. The genetic defect has been identified on short arm of chromosome 20.This
report describes a 20 years old male admitted in our unit in April 2017 with classical clinical features like blistering and
photosensitivity in adulthood and the subsequent development of poikiloderma.
