Lentigines are impalpable hyperpigmented lesions that display an increased number of melanocytes in the basal layer of the epidermis. They are darker coloured than freckles, and they may occur anywhere in the skin and in the mucous membranes. In childhood hte principal importance is the association of muliple lentigines with a variety of syndromes (LEOPARD syndrome, Touraine lentiginosis, Peutz-Jeghers syndrome).
