Dyschromatosis symetrica hereditaria (reticulate acropigmentation of Dohi) is a rare autosomal dominant disease. It starts as hyperpigmented and hypopigmented macules in reticular pattern on the extremities. We present a case of a 13-year old boy that showed hyper and hypopigmented macules distributed on the dorsal aspects of the extremities, freckle-like pigmented macules on the face and periorbital atrophic linear lesions. Differentiation with others reticulate pigmentation manifestations is necessary.
