|Clinical features of Galli–Galli disease, hyperpigmented slightly scaly papules|
Galli–Galli disease is a type of Dowling-Degos' disease, a reticulate pigmentary disorder. It presents with many small hard red-brown bumps 1mm to 2mm is size, laid out in a lace-like pattern. These typically occur in skin folds such as the underarms and neck, but also the arms, chest, hands, legs and groin.
The condition runs in families. The disease is also characterized by slowly progressive and disfiguring reticulate hyperpigmentation of the flexures, clinically and histopathologically diagnostic for Dowling-Degos disease but also associated with suprabasal, nondyskeratotic acantholysis.
It is rare.
