Reticulate acropigmentation of Kitamura (RAPK) is a less common genodermatosis characterized by pigmented, angulated, atrophic freckle-like lesions arranged in a reticulate pattern over the dorsal surface of the hand. We herein report a case of unilateral RAPK in an 18-year-old girl. The patient has cutaneous lesions and histopathology characteristic of RAPK, involving only the right hand. Because of its rarity, this case has been registered.
Keywords: Acropigmentation, Genodermatosis, Reticulate Pigmentation, Unilateral.
