Dermatopathia pigmentosa reticularis: a report of a family demonstrating autosomal dominant inheritance.

Author information

Dermatology Service, Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Washington, D.C.


Dermatopathia pigmentosa reticularis is a rare heritable disorder consisting of a triad of cutaneous findings including reticulate hyperpigmentation, noncicatricial alopecia, and onychodystrophy. In addition to this triad, other variable features of dermatopathia pigmentosa reticularis have been described, including adermatoglyphia, hypohidrosis or hyperhidrosis, and palmoplantar hyperkeratosis. Only 10 cases have been described in the world literature to date, and no clear inheritance pattern has been demonstrated. We present a patient with the classic features of the dermatopathia pigmentosa reticularis triad, along with adermatoglyphia, hypohidrosis, and punctate hyperkeratosis of the palms and soles. A family pedigree demonstrates the autosomal dominant inheritance of dermatopathia pigmentosa reticularis.
