Goltz syndrome, also known as focal dermal hypoplasia, is a rare genodermatosis. It is an X-linked dominant disorder characterized by mesoectodermal dysplasia present with cutaneous, ocular, dental, and skeletal defects. Its hallmark is thinning of the dermis resulting subcutaneous fat herniation. We report a case of a 7-month-old female child with typical clinical features of Goltz syndrome with some unusual findings such as severe abdominal dehiscence, bladder exstrophy, and absence of the fifth metacarpal and distal phalanx.
