Reticulate pigmentary disorders include presentations with “net-like,” “sieve-like,” or “chicken wire” configuration of the skin lesions. Various congenital and acquired dermatoses, as well as few systemic diseases, are present with this pattern of skin lesions. However, there is a lack of consensus on the exact scope of the term “reticulate” pigmentary disorders. True reticulate disorders include mostly genetic disorders including dyskeratosis congenita, Dowling Degos, acropigmentation of Kitamura, Naegeli Franceschetti Jadassohn (NFJ) syndrome, X-linked reticulate pigmentary disorder, dyschromatosis symmetrica hereditaria (DSH), and dyschromatosis universalis hereditaria (DUH). We review the “true” genetic reticulate pigmentary disorders here.
