Kindler syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive disorder associated with skin fragility. It is characterized by trauma-induced blistering in infancy, photosensitivity, progressive poikiloderma and extensive skin atrophy. Additional clinical features also described. In this report we described a 21-year-old male patient with Kindler syndrome who had bilateral athelia and double uvula as additional clinical findings. As far as we know, this is the first report in the literature describing these new associated findings in Kindler syndrome.
