Abstract: Background: Melasma is a common hypermelanosis condition that often occurs in areas of the skin that are often exposed to sunlight and the most common predilection on the face. The description of melasma lesions is often difficult to distinguish from exogenous ochronosis which can lead to misdiagnosis and treatment. Woods light examination and dermoscopy are diagnostic tools that are often used in cases of melasma because they are non-invasive compared to histopathological examination by skin biopsy.
