Pigmentary demarcation lines (PDLs) are abrupt demarcation lines between the areas of light and dark pigmentation and also called as Futcher«SQ»s or Voigt lines. These lines are most commonly seen in upper and lower limbs but can also be seen in other body parts. They occur almost in all races, but the incidence is more in Japanese, Caucasians and Negros. Treatment is not necessary because of transitory and asymptomatic nature of PDL. If at all required, it is due to cosmetic concerns only. We are reporting a rare case of type B PDL persisting even after 1 year postpartum.
