The trunk and extremities are the dominant sites of abnormal pigmentation. Facial lesions can be seen in 50% of affected individuals, but involvement of palms and soles is unusual. Abnormalities of hair and nails have also been reported. Dyschromatosis universalis hereditaria may be associated with abnormalities of dermal connective tissue, nerve tissue, or other systemic complications.
