Hypomelanosis of Ito, or incontinentia pigmenti achromians (HI; OMIM 300.337), was first described in 1952 by the Japanese dermatologist Minor Ito, who reported the case of a young woman with swirls of hypopigmentation along Blaschko’s lines of the trunk and bilaterally on the extremities. Here we report the case of a 10-year-old girl with a longstanding history of the condition and unusual involvement of the nephrourinary system.
