Abstract

Ink spot lentigo, also known as reticulated black solar lentigo, is a melanotic macula commonly described in fair-skinned individuals on sun-exposed areas of the body. Clinically it is a darkly pigmented type of solar lentigo; herein the term ink spot lentigo. In contrast to common solar lentigines, ink spot lentigo is reported as a unique lesion. However usually ink spot lentigo appears among several common solar lentigines. We report a series of 5 patients who presented ink spot lentigo with typical dermoscopic pattern but singular clinical features.
