  News - Hypopigmentation A Potential Adverse Effect Of Imatinib Mesylate
Hypopigmentation is a potential adverse effect of imatinib mesylate, although its occurrence does not appear to affect prognosis in patients treated for chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) or gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GIST).
The 70-year-old man with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and cardiomyopathy was diagnosed with GIST after presenting with congestive heart failure, a large bleeding gastric tumour metastatic to the liver, and severe hypoalbuminaemia.
Although the intermediate and longer-term adverse effects of imatinib mesylate are still not completely known, patients who develop hypopigmentation need to be aware that this is an adverse effect of treatment and not of their disease.

Hypopigmentation seems to be fairly common for resolved guttate psoriasis, and I haven't heard of a case where it was permanent.
Hypopigmentation, or in my case, hyperpigmentation (darker areas), seems to be the next pain in the ass with P. You clear up, just to face something else.

In the case of illness or injury, the person’s skin might change color, becoming darker (hyperpigmentation), or lighter (hypopigmentation).

Disorders of hypopigmentation are classified as either diffuse or localized.
The most common forms are due to mutations in the tyrosinase gene (type I) or the P gene (type II); patients with type IA OCA have a total lack of enzyme activity.
The degree of pigment formation is also a function of racial background, and the pigmentary dilution is readily apparent when patients are compared to their first-degree relatives.

Hypopigmentation may be primarily due to the reduced numbers of active melanocytes and a decrease in number and size of melanosomes in the affected skin.
Hypopigmentation may also result as a side effect of medications such as retinoic acid, benzoyl peroxide, and topical steroids.
The correct diagnosis is usually suggested by the age of the patient, fine scaling, hypopigmentation, and the distribution of lesions.

There are three main types of skin hypopigmentation: vitiligo, postinflammatory hypopigmentation, and albinism.
Vitiligo is characterized by depigmented areas, usually sharply demarcated and often symmetric, caused by a lack of melanocytes.

Therefore, it is of utmost importance to develop a systemic approach to patients presenting with pigmentary disorders so as to come to an appropriate diagnosis and subsequent correct management.
Hypopigmentation at birth or during infancy can be approached clinically based on the following groups: generalized hypopigmentation, localized, patterned hypopigmentation and localized, non-patterned hypopigmentation.
Other miscellaneous conditions that causes hypopigmentation in childhood includes sarcoidosis, leucoderma at sites of vaccination, cryosurgery for viral warts as well as topical medications like tretinoin and potent corticosteroids.

Focal hypopigmentation is most commonly a consequence of injury, inflammatory dermatoses such as atopic dermatitis and psoriasis (postinflammatory hypopigmentation), burns, or chemical exposure.
Focal hypo- or depigmentation is also a feature of vitiligo (which may involve large areas of skin), leprosy, nutritional deficiencies (kwashiorkor), and genetic conditions (tuberous sclerosis, piebaldism, Waardenburg's syndrome).
Hypopigmentation can also be diffuse; the most important causes are albinism and vitiligo.
