Abstract

Congenital insensitivity to pain with anhidrosis ( CIPA) is a rare hereditary sensory neuropathy, comprising congenital insensitivity to pain, anhidrosis, and mental retardation. We present a 4-year-old child with CIPA and a calcaneal ulcer who was treated with double opposing rotation flaps, which eventually healed.
