Laugier– Hunziker syndrome (LHS) is a rare benign acquired disorder that is characterized by hyperpigmented macules of the oral cavity, lips and tips of the fingers and toes, often associated with longitudinal melanonychia. The case discussed here is a 50-year-old woman with clinical and histopathological features suggestive of LHS. We also elicit the various other causes of a similar presentation.
