Dermatopathia pigmentosa reticularis is a rare autosomal dominant disorder. It is an ectodermal dysplasia, characterized by a triad of generalized reticulate hyperpigmentation, noncicatricial alopecia, and onychodystrophy. The mode of inheritance is probably autosomal dominant associated with mutation in keratin 14 on chromosome 17. We report the case of a 31-year-old male presented with reticulate hyperpigmentation all over the body with diffuse noncicatricial alopecia and onychodystrophy of the finger and toe nails. He also had palmoplantar hypohydrosis and poorly developed dermatoglyphics. There were no other findings of ectodermal-derived organ involvement.
