BACKGROUND The pathogenesis of melasma is not yet fully understood. [...] Key Method Skin samples were obtained from lesional and non-lesional facial skin of 50 Korean women with melasma. Immunohistochemistry was performed to determine the expression of factor VIIIa-related antigen and VEGF in melasma. RESULTS The values of a* was significantly higher in the melasma lesion than that of perilesional normal skin.Expand
