Dohi's Reticulated Acropigmentation: a Case Report
Background: Dohi's Reticulated Acropigmentation is a rare autosomal dominant genodermatosis with high penetrance, characterized by small, irregular, hypo and hyperpigmented macules on the dorsal surface of the distal extremities.
Case: The authors report a case of Dohi’s Reticulated Acropigmentation in a 61 years old female patient. The patient complained of spots on hands, feet and posteriorly face involvement since she was 7 years old.
Conclusion: Dohi's Reticulated Acropigmentation is a rare clinical condition, which usually appear in childhood and commonly interrupt their onset before adolescence. The diagnosis is based on clinical data, physical examination and histopathological findings. The treatment is unsatisfactory and still no therapy is proposed.
