Galli-Galli disease is a rare genodermatosis currently regarded as an acantholytic variant of Dowling-Degos disease. The 2 diseases have the same clinical features: reticular hyperpigmented macules in the great skin folds, erythematous scaly papules and plaques, comedo-like lesions, and pitted perioral scars, and the only differentiating characteristic is the histological finding of acantholysis, usually without dyskeratosis. We describe the case of a patient with hyperpigmented papules in the skin folds as the only sign of Galli-Galli disease, and we present a review of the literature.
