Dermatopathia pigmentosa reticularis (DPR), also known as dermatopathia pigmentosa reticularis hyperkeratotica et mutilans, dermatopathia pigmentosa reticularis hypohidotica et atrophica and dermatopathic pigmentosa reticularis,[1]:511 is a rare, autosomal dominant[2] congenital disorder that is a form of ectodermal dysplasia. Dermatopathia pigmentosa reticularis is composed of the triad of generalized reticulate hyperpigmentation, noncicatricial alopecia, and onychodystrophy.[3]:856


Symptoms include lack of sweat glands, thin hair, brittle nails, mottled skin, and lack of fingerprints.


DPR is comparable to Naegeli syndrome, both of which are caused by a specific defect in the keratin 14 protein.[4]
