Griscelli syndrome type 3 is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in the melanophilin gene and does not have any mucocutaneous or systemic abnormalities other than a pigmentary dilution of skin and hair. We report a case of an 8-year-old girl who presented with silvery grey hair of scalp, eyebrows, eyelashes, and entire body surface with associated universal dyschromia of the skin. After establishing a definite diagnosis of Griscelli syndrome 3, the prognosis was explained and counseling was given. A review of the literature revealed only 27 cases of Griscelli syndrome type 3 in the English language of which only one case by Batrani et al. has reported an associated dyschromia. We report this case to add to the existing literature on this rare condition and to highlight the coexistence of universal dyschromia with Griscelli syndrome type 3.
