Incontinentia Pigmenti Overview
Incontinentia pigmenti, sometimes referred to as IP or Bloch-Sulzberger syndrome, is an unusual inherited disorder of skin pigmentation that is associated with abnormalities of the skin, teeth, bones, brain or spinal cord, and eyes. The exact cause of IP is not yet known.
Incontinentia pigmenti is often diagnosed in affected newborns because of the presence of a characteristic rash. The skin changes often disappear with time, but an evaluation for nervous system and eye disturbances must be promptly initiated.
