Epidermal nevus syndrome is a rare, sporadic, congenital disorder, characterized by epidermal nevi, associated with multiple organ anomalies and skeletal changes. However, hypophosphatemic rickets-associated ENS is rarely reported. Thus, we report an 11-year-old girl with hypophosphatemic rickets and extensive linear nevi associated with a large checkerboard-speckled lentiginous nevus. Skeletal changes were characterized with severe osteoporosis, multiple recurrent low-trauma fractures, cystic lesions along the right femur, limbs discrepancies with deformities, short middle finger, and hemiatrophy.
