Lipoid proteinosis is a rare autosomal recessive metabolic disorder characterized by deposition of hyaline material in the dermis. A young Muslim female with history of consanguinity among parents presented with classical signs of the disease, like multiple pearly white beaded papules along eyelid margins, hyper pigmented scars and hoarseness of voice. Vocal cords showed diffuse thickening and ophthalmological examination revealed trichiasis and distichiasis though no drusen was seen. Interestingly the patient had history of recurrent bullons eruptions, a rare presentation and also there was hypertrichosis over limbs instead of the usually reported alopecia.
