Segmental lentiginosis with ipsilateral segmental vitiligo – a case report

S Kuruvila, M Dalal

Abstract


We report a patient with unilateral segmental lentiginosis of the right side of face and ipsilateral segmental vitiligo of right axilla. The patient also had a larger hyperpigmented macule on the same side of the face. This could have been a café au lait macule. We are reporting this case for its rarity.
