AbstractTwo male patients with Becker's melanosis are described. The observation of depigmentation and leucotrichia in the lesion in one of them is regarded extremely unusual. The histopathological features comprised of marked acanthosis, papillomatosis, increased basal pigmentation and hyalinization of dermal connective tissue. Focal areas of loss of basal pigment were attended by pigment incontinence and dermal inflammation.
