Dyschromatosis universalis hereditaria (DUH) is a rare entity in the Indian subcontinent presenting with generalized pigmented macule all over the body. We report a case of a 13-year-old patient of DUH with bilateral gradual progressive diminution of vision and increasing white opacity for the past 5 years. The patient presented with a bilateral central corneal ulcer. The microbiological report of the corneal scraping sample was negative. The ulcer responded to topical gatifloxacin eye drop, and the epithelial defect healed with excessive brown pigmentation in both eyes. Whether this bilateral keratopathy and healing with pigmentation are a part of the spectrum of DUH or not needs to be evaluated further.
