Cutis laxa is a genetically heterogeneous group of disorders that can be inherited in autosomal dominant or recessive manner.  Autosomal dominant cutis laxa is primarily characterized by loose, redundant skin without hyperelasticity. Aortic dilation, inguinal hernias, and pulmonary emphysema are other common findings.  Cardiac valve abnormalities, hoarse voice, and mild facial dysmorphism, including a beaked nose and long philtrum, have also been reported.
