Centrofacial Lentiginosis is a skin condition that I occasionally encounter in both my The Woodlands dermatology and Conroe dermatology offices in which a patient develops multiple lentigines, small flat brown macules, on their central face. Patients typically develop Centrofacial Lentiginosis early in life and it is sometimes associated with underlying abnormalities in the spine and central nervous system. Carney Syndrome, is a genetic disorder, in which patients also develop Centrofacial Lentiginosis. As these lentigines are benign, no treatment is necessary unless cosmetically desired and this can best be accomplished with a laser specific for pigmented lesions.
