The aim of this report was to demonstrate that hypomelanosis of Ito is one of the rarest neurocutaneous disorders. The authors report the observation of a case of hypomelanosis of Ito (also known as HI or incontinentia pigmenti achromians) in an 8-year-old boy. Hypomelanosis of Ito often occurs at birth or during childhood. It mainly appears as cutaneous lesions on different parts of the body (trunk, arm and legs), such as hypopigmented streaks, whorls and patches. It has not yet been demonstrated but multiple involvement and associated defects suggest the possible congenital inheritance of this disease. This case report describes a systematic and definitive diagnosis.
