Abstract

Ochronosis is an uncommon condition characterized by yellow-brown pigment deposits in the dermis. It occurs in exogenous and endogenous forms. We report a case of exogenous ochronosis in a Hispanic woman and discuss the different forms of this condition. We treated the lesions with Q-switched ruby laser.
