A brief note on causes, symptoms and diagnosis of melasma.
Melasma is a common, acquired pigmentary disorder characterized by irregular, brown to gray-brown patches on sun-exposed areas of the skin, primarily affecting women of reproductive age. The diagnosis of melasma involves a combination of clinical evaluation, patient history, and, in some cases, dermatoscopic or histopathological examination. This abstract provides an overview of the key diagnostic methods and considerations in the evaluation of melasma.Author(s): John Jimbow
