Hapnes Boman Skeie syndrome

Hapnes Boman Skeie syndrome is a rare genetic disorder in which subcutaneous angiolipomas form around the wrists, knees, and ankles. [2] The syndrome was first described by Sveln Hapnes et al. in 1980. [2]

Hapnes Boman Skeie syndrome
Other namesExtensor tendons of finger anomalies[1]
This condition is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner

Hapnes Boman Skeie syndrome is also known as "anomalous insertion of extensor tendons of fingers".[3] This name derives from the condition that the tendons of the fingers are attached in such a way that the fingers cannot open or close normally. Though the tumors extend deeply into the muscle tissue, joints, and tendons, the tumors did not invade these structures.[2]
