Laugier–Hunziker syndrome (/ˈlʒi ˈhʊntsɪkər/) is a cutaneous condition characterized by hyperpigmentation of the oral mucosa,[1] longitudinal melanonychia,[1] and genital melanosis.[2]

The hyperpigmentation presented in Laugier-Hunziker syndrome is benign and should be differentiated from Peutz-Jeghers syndrome.
