Congenital generalized hypertrichosis terminalis is a rare primary hypertrichotic condition, of unknown etiology presenting in the pediatric population. Though benign in nature, there is considerable psychosocial trauma attached to this, owing to the cosmetic disfigurement it produces. The association of gingival fibromatosis and a coarse facies could further worsen the cosmesis. Thus, a multidisciplinary approach involving a psychologist, a dentist apart from the dermatologist would be mandatory. We present this rare syndrome with the purpose of getting a better insight regarding the inheritance, the clinical features and the best available treatment modalities, especially the modern and novel techniques of hair removal that could be utilized to manage such individuals.
