Congenital fascial dystrophy (a variant of stiff skin syndrome) is a rare scleroderma-like genetic disorder characterized by stony-hard skin, limited joint mobility and flexural contracture of the limbs. The onset is at birth, and the disease occurs without sclerodactyly, telangiectases, nail fold changes and visceral involvement. We report a typical case to illustrate the clinical and pathologic findings of a patient with this disorder. To our knowledge, this is the first case of this disorder in Taiwan to be reported.
