Abstract

Pigmentary demarcation lines (PDLs) are physiological abrupt transitions between hyperpigmented and lighter skin, a common and sometimes troubling feature of normal skin. They are seen in a majority of dark-complexioned women and a substantial percentage of light-complexioned ones too. We review this salient finding and approaches to its management.
