  • Abstract

    Progressive macular hypomelanosis was first employed by Guillet et al., in 1988, to describe characteristic hypopigmentation within mixed racial population in French Caribbean. Progressive macular hypomelanosis is characterized by ill-defined asymptomatic non-scaly hypopigmented macules of varying sizes on trunk and proximal extremities. It rarely extends to the head-and-neck region. There is no itching or pain or inflammation before the onset of lesion. Progressive macular hypomelanosis is more common in tropical countries.
