Dyschromatosis universalis hereditaria is a type of reticulate pigmentary disorder of the skin.[1] It is characterized by dark and light spots formed like lace in a generalized distribution.[1]

Both autosomal dominant and recessive inheritance have been reported with the disorder.[2]

It has been associated with mutations in genes SASH1 and ABCB6.

It is a rare genodermatosis.[1]
