Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome (RTS) is an autosomaldominant hereditary disease, which contains many skeletal and organ anomalies as well as mental retardation. Although high incidence of keloids in RTS is known, it is difficult to find a detailed report on the clinical features of keloids. In the following letter, we report an RTS patient fulfilling diagnostic criteria whosuffered from both keloids and pilomatricoma. We also performed a literature search, which identified the possible involvement of the Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway in the pathogenesis of these two skin lesions.
