Abstract: White sponge nevus (WSN) is an autosomal dominant skin disorder characterized by white, corrugated and diffuse plaques mainly affecting the oral mucosa. The condition has a high penetrance and variable expressivity, but familial reports are uncommon. This report presents a familial case of WSN in which two sisters are affected by the disorder.
