Abstract
Lymphedema-distichiasis syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant disorder that presents as lymphedema of the extremities and double rows of eyelashes. Associated abnormalities include con- genital heart disease, spinal extradural cysts, ver- tebral abnormalities, ptosis, cleft palate and hemangiomas. Epidermodysplasia verruciformis is a human papilloma virus-associated, life-long, genetically determined disease, originally described as a genodermatosis. We report a 20- year-old male patient who had these two rare gen- odermatosis concurrently.
