Abstract

EVALUATION OF SERUM α-MSH LEVEL IN MELASMA

Mohammad A. Abdalla* and Mohammad S. Nayaf

ABSTRACT

The term “melasma,” or facial hyperpigmentation, is derived from the Greek melas, meaning “black”. It has been also termed “chloasma gravidarum” and “the mask of pregnancy”. Its onset is usually during the second half of the gestational period, and it occurs in 45–75% of pregnancies. It is said to be more common in dark-haired, brown-eyed, dark-complexion women. The major differences in the incidence of melasma in the different studies were attributed to the fact that pigmentary changes are more discernible in fair-skinned individuals.[1,2]
