Abstract

FROES, Giselle Carvalho; PEREIRA, Luciana Baptista  and  ROCHA, Vanessa Barreto. Case for diagnosis. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2009, vol.84, n.4, pp. 425-427. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962009000400017.

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.
