A 10-year-old boy had multiple grouped pits with black plugs arranged along the lines of Blaschko on his left chest, arm, and palm. Involvement of the palms is rarely reported in the literature.

We briefly review the literature on mosaic conditions with acneiform lesions including nevus comedonicus.
