Identifying Pigmentations


I was recently working on a client and using my new found powers of observation found in Chapter 3 of Mosby’s Pathology. While working on my client, I found many skin anomalies that I would have normally considered locally contraindicated, as I was not sure what the anomaly actually is. I discovered many age spots on my client, as he spends a large majority of his time outdoors in direct sunlight. I initially thought they might be cancerous, but upon further investigation and questioning, found them merely to be pigmented lesions due to chronic sun exposure. Knowledge is power!
