We speculate that RAPK and DD are part of a spectrum of reticulate pigmentary disorders with varied phenotypic expression.

The clinical diagnosis of reticulate acropigmentation of Kitamura (RAK) was made in both the patients and was confirmed histopathologically. These are the first case reports of this condition from Nepa...
