Abstract: Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome (HPS) is a rare autosomal-recessive disorder characterized by oculocutaneous albinism, a hemorrhagic diathesis due to platelet dysfunction, and lysosomal ceroid accumulation that can cause a Crohn’s-like granulomatous colitis and pulmonary fibrosis. We report peristomal and vulvar cutaneous involvement of the granulomatous colitis in HPS.
