    Hydroxychloroquine‐induced hyperpigmentation. 2012-10-01 Dear Editor, Antimalarial agents, including chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, have been used for the treatment of various rheumatoid diseases and skin disease through their anti‐inflammatory and immune‐modulating properties. Drug-induced skin pigmentation accounts for 10–20% of all cases of acquired hyperpigmentation. Pigmentation may be induced by a wide variety of drugs; the main ones implicated include non-steroidal anti- inflammatory drugs NSAIDs, phenytoin, antimalarials, amiodarone, antipsychotic drugs, cytotoxic drugs, tetracyclines, and heavy metals. Pigmentation appeared after a median duration of hydroxychloroquine treatment of 32 months with a median cumulative dose of 361 g. Overall, two patients reported that the appearance of pigmented lesions was preceded by the occurrence of ecchymotic areas following microtrauma.
