Amyloidosis cutis dyschromica (ACD), a rare distinct type of primary cutaneous amyloidosis was noted in two siblings: a 25-year-old male and his brother aged 20 years. It was characterized by reticulate hyperpigmentation with hypopigmented spots seen almost all over the body without any papulation. This familial disorder has been reported mostly from Japan.
