Abstract

Linear and whorled nevoid hypermelanosis (LWNH) is a rare sporadic disorder of pigmentation characterised by swirls and streaks of macular pigmentation along the lines of Blaschko. It can be frequently associated with extracutaneous features. We report clinical and dermoscopic presentation of a case of generalised linear and whorled nevoid hypermelanosis in a 1-year-old child involving the trunk and extremities while sparing the face, palms, soles and mucosae without any extracutaneous features.
 

Keywords: Linear and whorled hypermelanosis, Blaschko's lines, Dermoscopy Pigmentary dermatoses, Genodermatoses
