A young girl presented with dark blue black smoky pigmentation on her face which she presumed started after chloroquine therapy for malaria. Histology revealed a normal picture except some yellow brown granules in the superficial part of the stratum corneum. A strict vigilance on the patient after admission revealed that she had been applying lead pencil powder on her face to gain sympathy from her parents. An unusual presentation of pseudochromhidrosis is reported with relevant review of literature.
