Abstract

Although lentigines are usually benign, they can be associated with a number of genetic syndromes in which neoplasms and other multi-system pathological processes occur. Here, we report the case of a 6-year-old girl who presented with atypical lentiginosis and hyperpigmentation caused by a de novo genetic variant in the KIT gene.
