Reticulate acropigmentation of Kitamura (RAPK) is a rare genodermatosis characterized by pigmented, angulated, atrophic freckle-like lesions arranged in a reticulate pattern on the dorsal surface of hands and feet with symmetric involvement. We hereby report a case of unilateral RAPK in a 29-year-old female. The patient had cutaneous lesions and histopathology characteristic of RAPK, involving only the left side of her body with clear midline demarcation. This case is being reported in view of its rarity and being the first of its kind.
