Albright's Syndrome: Case report
Rueih-Chung Chiao, The-Lu Chu, Hua-Min Weng
Dermatol Sinica 1: 41-44, 1983

Cutaneous pigmentation in Albright’s syndrome is a rare pigmentary disorder. A 20-year-old Chinese male developed hyperpigmented patches with irregularly jagged margins on the left brachial area, axillary area, buttocks and thighs since childhood. He had experienced at least four times fractures, primarily of the left arm, since the age of ten to sixteen. The X-ray examination showed typical polyostotic fibrous dysplasia of the left humerus, ulna, radius, metacarpus, phalanges, tibia and fibula. During the early infancy hyperkeratosis of palms and soles was noted. To the best of our knowledge, there has no Albright’s syndrome combined with hyperkeratosis of palms and soles been reported in English literature.
