Familial progressive hyperpigmentation with or without hypopigmentation (FPHH) is characterized by diffuse hyperpigmentation of variable intensity sometimes associated with cafe-au-lait macules and larger hypopigmented ash-leaf macules. These features, which involve the face, neck, trunk, and limbs, are seen at birth or develop early in infancy (summary by Wang et al., 2009 and Amyere et al., 2011). Also see familial progressive hyperpigmentation (FPH1; 614233). [from OMIM]
