Dyschromatosis Universalis Hereditaria (DUH) belongs to a group of congenital diffuse reticulate pigmentary disorders characterised by both hypo and hyper pigmented macules. It is both hereditary and sporadic. A number of associated cutaneous and systemic diseases have been reported. The recent discovery of the mutation in ATP binding cassette protein, ABCB6 in DUH attempts to explain the reason behind the pigmentary abnormalities and varied associations. We add a new association by reporting a case of DUH with primary ovarian failure (POF) and hypothyroidism.
