Lipoid proteinosis (LP) is a very rare, autosomally recessive, inherited disease.

It is also known as Urbach Wiethe disease or Hyalinosis cutis et mucosa.  

It is characterized by a hoarse voice, warty skin infiltration and scarring.

Additional symptoms included beaded eyelid papules, macroglossia with yellowish papules, yellowish deposits of soft palate, papular eruption in the axillary area and tuberous nodules on the elbows.

Mutations within the extracellular matrix protein 1 (ECM1) gene cause lipoid proteinosis.

Lipoid proteinosis mainly involves skin and mucosal membranes of upper aerodigestive tract as well as central nervous system, lung, lymph nodes and striated muscles.

Histologically, there is diffuse deposition of a hyaline-like substance in the superficial dermis and submucosal connective tissue.

Initially,PAS-positive diastase resistant hyaline material is demonstrated around small blood vessels and at the periphery of eccrine sweat glands. 

In advanced cases deposits around blood vessels may have a onion-skin appearance.
