Rights and Permissions

Lichen planus pigmentosus, erythema dyschromicum perstans and idiopathic eruptive macular pigmentation are the three most commonly accepted subtypes of acquired dermal hyperpigmentary disorders. While some patients fit easily into one of these subtypes, others do not. Overlapping features of several subtypes may also be seen in the one patient. This paper covers these three entities in detail and highlights the diagnostic and classification challenges.
