Reticulate acropigmentation of Dohi is a rare dyschromic disorder of autosomal dominant inheritance. Most cases have been originally described in Japan. The case of a girl with lesions of typical distribution and morphology is reported. Skin biopsy was not considered essential for diagnosis. After literature review, it was concluded that this is the third case of the disorder reported in Brazil.
