Parry-Romberg disease (or hemifacial atrophy) is a rare condition affecting the face. It commences in childhood but its aetiology remains unknown, and is sporadic. Two cases are presented who were biological first cousins. We believe that this is the first recorded example of this condition occurring in family members.
