A 72-year-old female presented with epigastric pain, anorexia, weight loss, malaise for three months. Examination revealed a hard tender epigastric mass, and hyperpigmented, lichenified, papillomatous skin involving neck and intertriginous areas. The palms revealed a distinctive appearance on examination. This one-year-old female infant developed macular pigmentation on her trunk and limbs since five months old. She developed a vesicular eruption and verrucous papules at birth, otherwise she had good past health. Her elder sister had a similar pigmentation.
