• Generalized discrete hypopigmented macules forming a camouflage pattern appeared on the skin of a man. The condition has been present and has not changed since the age of 6 months. Five other members of his family are reported to have the same abnormality. All affected members also have punctate keratosis of the palms and soles. An autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance is suggested.
