Incontinentia pigmentii acromians (IPA) is a bizarre, irregularly shaped leukoderma of the trunk and extremities, characterized by marble cake-like whorls or streaks of hypopigmentation whose distribution can be unilateral or bilateral. Mode of inheritance is most consistent with an autosomal dominant type and in majority of the cases, one or more anomalies are present involving dermatological, dental and ocular disorders. A case of a female child, aged 2 1/2 yrs, referred from Pediatric neurology department, Medical College, Trivandrum with Incontinentia pigmentii acromians and seizure disorder is reported. Hamartomatous dental cusps and single maxillary central incisors have been associated with Incontinentia pigmentii acromians. A case of Incontinentia pigmentii acromians with hypoplastic teeth and tongue abnormalities is presented.
