Cutis laxa (CL) is a rare connective tissue disorder which may be inherited or acquired. It is characterized by a loose skin. Inherited forms are autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive and X-linked recessive. Congenital cutis laxa may present with variable systemic involvement e.g (gastrointestinal, CNS and cardiopulmonary) determining a worst prognosis. Acquired forms of this disease have been associated with a past inflammatory skin disorder. We report a 4 year old boy with a congenital cutis laxa. He was admitted for vomiting and constipation. Diagnosis of cutis laxa is typically made by physical examination and associated extra cutaneous finding. Cutis laxa is a rare disorder, diagnosed clinically although there is wide clinical and genetic heterogeneity.
