Lentigines

Freckles and  Lentigines are one of the most commonly identified pigmented lesions. These lesions are observed on the skin, which points to occur in light-skinned people with red or blonde hair. Freckles are usually in sun-exposed areas like the face, upper trunk, and the posterior aspect of the arms and hands.

Freckles are harmless skin lesions that are usually round in shape, light to dark brown. They are just a few millimeters in width.

Beginning in life, they can grow in number and frequency. Still, they often decrease in number as a person enters adulthood.

Two chief types of lentigines:

  • Simple Lentigo
  • Solar lentigo

Lentigines color does not change in response to sunlight.

Solar lentigines, also called sunspots, liver spots, age spots, or actinic lentigines, are well-circumscribed, round to irregularly formed macules with different colors varying from light brown to black.

These occur in response to sustained photodamage and are therefore most commonly seen in the aged. Solar lentigines are mainly observed in people with lighter skin.
