Abstract

PEREIRA, Priscilla Maria Rodrigues et al. Do you know this syndrome?. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2010, vol.85, n.5, pp. 751-753. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962010000500029.

Laugier-Hunziker syndrome is an acquired macular hyperpigmentation of the oral and genital mucosa, often associated with longitudinal melanonychia. We report a case of longitudinal melanonychia on ?ngernails and toenails, hutchinson's signal and lenticular pigmentation of her lips and oral mucosa. Histopathological analysis is tipical and had a broad differential diagnosis. This is a rare and benign entity, which should be included in the differential diagnosis of mucocutaneous hyperpigmentation.

Keywords : Diagnosis, differential; Mouth mucosa; Pigmentation disorders.
