Lipoid proteinosis is a rare disorder, with only 300 cases reported in the medical literature. It is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait, characterized by the deposition of a hyaline material in the dermis and submucosal connective tissues. Classical clinical symptoms of this disease are skin scarring, beaded eyelid papules, and laryngeal infiltration, leading to hoarseness. In this article, we present a case report of a 61-year-old male patient who reported to our institution with multiple yellowish papules in tongue, hoarseness of voice, and beading of eyelids.
