• Dermatopathia pigmentosa reticularis is a rare disorder that presents as reticulate pigmentation distributed widely all over the cutaneous surface. Only nine patients with this disease have been described previously. Our patient had no fingernail and toenail prints, a striking finding also noted in some, but not all, of the other nine patients. Our patient also had a history of a seizure disorder and had two cutaneous neurofibromas, unlike the other patients with this disorder. However, there were no other findings, such as Lisch nodules of the iris, to suggest a diagnosis of von Recklinghausen's disease.
