We present the case of a 7-year-old female patient with hyperpigmented and hypopigmented skin lesions on the back of both hands, asymptomatic, without any relevant history, non-consanguineous parents from Guatemala. Due to the clinical manifestations, the diagnosis of Dohi's reticulated acropimentation is made, a rare pathology that occurs mainly in people of Japanese descent, although cases have been seen in South America and Europe, despite having autosomal dominant inheritance in our case the patients were a new case; For the year 2015, 47 cases have been reported in the literature.
