• A mother and daughter had benign familial acanthosis nigricans. Familial acanthosis nigricans begins in early childhood and may be accentuated at puberty. The eruption is not associated with underlying illness. Forms of acanthosis nigricans are associated with obesity, endocrinologic abnormalities, drug ingestion, and malignant neoplasms.
