The H syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive genodermatosis caused by mutations in the nucleoside transporter hENT3. It is characterized by progressive skin sclerosis, hyperpigmentation, and hypertrichosis, along with multiple systemic manifestations including insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. We report this case for its rarity.
