Setleis syndrome is a rare skin disorder characterized by congenital scar-like depressions on the temples and distinctive facial appearance. We report on two from a consanguineous Omani family, with typical features of this syndrome. The mother in one case has mild dysmorphic features reminiscent of this syndrome and the father of the other case has bitemporal scars only.
