An eighteen year old female patient presented with pitted scars over her face, back and flexures, associated with discrete comedones over her trunk, face and extremities of 5 years duration. There was history of similar lesions in her mother since her adolescence. Examination of mother and daughter revealed reticulate flexural hyperpigmentation over neck, axillae, cubital and popliteal fossae in addition to the above mentioned findings. A few cystic lesions were also present on the back and flexures. Dowling-Degos disease in mother and daughter is reported for its rarity and also for some additional features present in these patients, i.e., multiple comedones on the back and extremities in addition to the flexures and also extensive acneiform scarring all over the face in contrast to perioral pitted scars reported in earlier cases.
