However, mosaic trisomy 8 syndrome has extremely variable phenotypes, with a wide range of clinical manifestations, including cranio-facial dysmorphism, mild to severe intellectual disability, multiple skeletal abnormalities, deep palmar-plantar creases, and cardiac-renal abnormalities. A few cases of skin pigmentary anomalies have also been reported. We report on a 36 year old male case with mosaic trisomy 8. He has mild clinical findings and palmo-plantar hypopigmentation, which appears as a demarcating line between his hands’ dorsal and palmar regions.
