A 3-year-old Korean girl was seen with asymptomatic hypopigmented macules and papules on the suprapubic area and trunk that developed at age 2 months. The patient had no history of trauma or inflammation, and family history was noncontributory. Physical examination revealed multiple grouped oval to round hypopigmented macules and minimally palpable flat-topped papules predominantly located in the suprapubic area and trunk (Figure 1).
