Post-inflammatory skin pigmentation. Close-up of a pigmented skin lesion on the back of a 57-year-old female patient following inflammation. Inflammatory mediators that are released as a result of inflammation stimulate melanocytes to increase the production of melanin. This can lead to hyperpigmentation (melanosis) as seen here.
