Cutis laxa forms a heterogeneous group of rare skin disorders characterized by progressive loss of skin elasticity, appearance of premature aging and variable commitment of elastic connective tissue. We report a patient 3 months of age, male gender, non consanguineous parents, with evidence of lax skin at birth and generalized hypotonia, associated with craniosynostosis, bilateral inguinal hernias, contractures of the hands and feet, bilateral clubfoot and congenital absence of body callosum. It is considered that the case described is compatible with autosomal recessive cutis laxa with phenotype secondary to abnormal function of the mitochondrial protein PYCR1, this association has not been described in the Colombian population.
