Abstract

We describe a case of chrysiasis in a 54-year-old woman. The diagnosis was confirmed by light microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and radiographic microanalysis. The condition developed after a relatively low dose of gold. We propose that chrysiasis developed because of the patient's exposure to the intense UV light in Australia.
