Laugier-Hunziker Syndrome

Abstract

Laugier-Hunziker syndrone is a rare, pigmentary disorder of the lips, oral mucosa, and nails. The absence of intestinal polyposis differentiated it from Peutz-Jeghers syndrome. We describe a 16-year-old boy with multiple, brownish, lenticular macules on the lips, oral mucosa, perianal area and anal mucosa, and on the digits of his fingers and toes, in wham intestinal polyposis was not detectable.
