Kindler syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive disorder associated with skin fragility. It is characterized by blistering in infancy, photosensitivity, and progressive poikiloderma. The syndrome can also involve mucous membrane, eyes, bones, and rarely nails. We report the case of an adolescent female patient with characteristic features of Kindler syndrome and striking presence of long and thick cuticle of nails, which has been rarely reported.
