  • Abstract Dyschromatosis is a pigmentary genodermatosis which presents with hyper and hypopigmented skin lesions giving a mottled appearance. It is a rare entity in India reported mainly in the East Asian population.[e-ijd.org]
  • Collectively, these observations suggest that DUH is a heterogeneous disorder of increased production and transport of melanosomes caused by SASH1 mutation together with melanocyte maldistribution.[precedings.nature.com]
  • A second locus for dyschromatosis was mapped on chromosome 6q24.2-q25.2 in two Chinese families initially reported to be affected with DSH, but later suggested to have autosomal dominant DUH.[eprints.hud.ac.uk]

  • It has been suggested in the past that DUH is a disorder of melanocyte number.[ijdvl.com]

  • The heterozygosity for the DSRAD knockout causes embryonic lethality in mice, whereas patients with DSH, which is localized specifically on the backs of the hands and tops of the feet, have a good prognosis. 23 Miyamura et al 11 speculated that when melanoblasts[jamanetwork.com]


  • The exact etiology of this disorder is unknown. However, studies seem to point towards an inherent abnormality of melanosomes or a defect in melanocyte processing. DUH occurs most commonly among the Japanese.[cags.org.ae]
  • Etiology A mutation has been identified in the double-stranded RNA-specific adenosine deaminase ( ADAR ) gene. Genetic counseling Transmission is autosomal dominant.[orpha.net]
  • Only genetic counselling is advised because of the recent reports of genetic etiology. This case of DUH is reported because of its rarity.[jmgims.co.in]
  • The etiology is unknown.[pigmentinternational.com]
  • The etiology of this disorder is not yet known. A variable autosomal mode of inheritance of DUH has been described. No family members had a similar appearance in our two cases. Some clinicians have suggested that DSH might be a subtype of DUH.[dermatology.cdlib.org]
