Buschke–Ollendorff syndrome, also known as Dermatofibrosis lenticularis disseminata,[1] is a rare genetic disorder associated with LEMD3. It is believed to be inherited in an autosomal dominant manner.[2]

It is named for Abraham Buschke and Helene Ollendorff Curth[3][4] who described it in a 45-year-old woman. Its frequency is almost 1 case per every 20'000 people and is equally found in both males and females.[5]


Buschke–Ollendorff syndrome has an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance.

Buschke–Ollendorff syndrome is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner.[2] This means that the defective gene responsible for the disorder is located on an autosome, and one copy of the defective gene is sufficient to cause the disorder when inherited from a parent who also has the disorder.
