Abstract

We report a case of a 10-month-old male infant with GM1 type 1 gangliosidosis who also had hyperpigmented macules and patches. Light and electron microscopic findings correlated with previously published reports on findings in skin biopsy specimens of patients with lipid storage disorders. The hyperpigmented macules are most likely mongolian spots. A differential diagnosis of these lesions is discussed.
