Desmoplastic melanoma presenting with localized hair repigmentationRahim, R.R.; Husain, A.; Tobin, Desmond J.; Lawrence, C.M. (2013)Hair repigmentation is a rare event. Generalized repigmentation of age-related grey or white hair has been reported after inflammatory processes; patchy repigmentation is even more unusual. We report an 82-year-old woman who developed a patch of pigmented hair arising within an underlying solar lentigo within her uniformly grey hair. Two years later this progressed into a desmoplastic melanoma with associated lentigo maligna-like epidermal changes.
