ABSTRACT
Linear Darier is a rare variant of Darier's Disease. The keratotic papules follow Blaschko's lines, characterizing the cutaneous mosaicism. We report the case of a 42-year-old woman who presented with small, linearly distributed, reddish-brown papules on the left mammary region, from the left flank to the hypogastrium and on the pretibial area of the left leg. Histologically, suprabasal acantholysis and dyskeratotic cells were seen, confirming the diagnosis.

Mentions: Female patient, 42 years-old, without any noticeable personal or familial history, haspresented, for the last four years, keratotic papules, some crusted, in a reddish-browncoloration, linearly distributed along the left mammary region (Figure 1). The patient presents similar lesions following theBlaschko lines from the left flank to the hypogastrium and also on the pretibial area ofthe left leg (Figure 2). These are pruriginouslesions that are exacerbated by the heat. There are no alterations to the palmar-plantarregions, mucosae or nails.
