The Condition

Pigmented lesions are caused by an excess of melanin in certain skin cells (melanin is the substance that gives skin its color). Types of pigmented lesions include:

Caf├ę-au-lait

Spots which are the light brown color of milky coffee. These can be small or very large and can appear on any part of the body.

Nevus of Ota

Pigmented birthmark which can be very large and occurs on the face. It is most common in Asian skin.

Freckles

Freckles, also called ephilides, are very small spots of concentrated pigment stimulated by the sun that tend to remain in stable locations on sun exposed areas. This is, of course, a very common condition.

Age spots (lentigines)

Age spots, also called liver spots or lentigines are abnormal pigment accumulations in the epidermis due to many years of sun exposure. They occur on the face, neck and chest and back as well as the forearms and hands.
