Summary Dyschromatosis universalis hereditaria is a clinically heterogenous disorder. We report two unrelated Indian patients with dyschromatosis universalis hereditaria, who had generalized and progressive reticulate hyper- and hypo-pigmentation of the skin. The oral mucosa and tongue also showed mottled pigmentation. Intriguingly, the palms and soles were also affected with a diffuse hyper-pigmentation interspersed with spotty de-pigmented macules. Dystrophic nail changes with pterygium format...

We describe a 37-year-old woman who presented with palmoplantar pigmentation. thickening and pitting of 4 years duration. Bluish pigmented patches were seen over the sclera of her eyes. Her lumbar spine showed typical calcification of the intervertebral discs. Addition of Benedict's reagent to a urine sample of the patient gave rise to greenish brown precipitate and brownish black supernatant. Alkalinization of urine turned it black. A biopsy of the palmar lesion demonstrated irregular breaking ...

Pachydermoperiostosis (PDP), a rare genodermatosis, occurred in a 38-year-old Indian male. He presented with progressive thickening of the skin on the face and scalp of 15 years duration. Widening of his wrists and ankles and broadening of the fingers and toes had also developed since then. He was born of a consanguineous marriage and had no family history of a similar disorder. He had the typical findings of complete form of PDP including cutis verticis gyrata, coarse facial features, clubbing ...

A 23 year old male presented with psoriasiform dermatitis of one month duration in April 1999 and was found to be HIV seropositive. He was managed with PUVA therapy. His cutaneous lesions improved but no improvement in arthritis and in nail changes occurred. Patient discontinued the therapy and presented with relapse in July 1999 with a different clinical picture, now suggestive of Reiter’s syndrome. He had keratoderma blenorrhagica and severe deforming arthritis. Such a case presents with dif...
Reticulate acral and flexural pigmentary disorders are a rare group of pigmentary genodermatoses. We report a family showing a combination of features described in the two disorders; reticulate acropigmentation of kitamura (RAPK) and Dowling Degos disease, along with palmoplantar keratoderma. We speculate that RAPK and DD are part of a spectrum of reticulate pigmentary disorders with varied phenotypic expression.
