Summaries for Pigmentation Anomaly of the Skin

MedlinePlus : 42 Pigmentation means coloring. Skin pigmentation disorders affect the color of your skin. Your skin gets its color from a pigment called melanin. Special cells in the skin make melanin. When these cells become damaged or unhealthy, it affects melanin production. Some pigmentation disorders affect just patches of skin. Others affect your entire body. If your body makes too much melanin, your skin gets darker. Pregnancy, Addison's disease, and sun exposure all can make your skin darker. If your body makes too little melanin, your skin gets lighter. Vitiligo is a condition that causes patches of light skin. Albinism is a genetic condition affecting a person's skin. A person with albinism may have no color, lighter than normal skin color, or patchy missing skin color. Infections, blisters and burns can also cause lighter skin.

MalaCards based summary : Pigmentation Anomaly of the Skin, also known as abnormality of skin pigmentation, is related to genetic pigmentation anomaly of the skin and polyposis, skin pigmentation, alopecia, and fingernail changes. An important gene associated with Pigmentation Anomaly of the Skin is MTX2 (Metaxin 2). The drugs Metformin and Latanoprost have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, bone and breast.
