DefinitionThis section has been translated automatically.
Reticulated, marbled, brownish hyperpigmentation due to increased melanin and hemosiderin production as a result of chronic, in loco regularly or irregularly repeated exposure to heat.
The reticulated hyperpigmentation is generally preceded by a reticulated erythema (live cell pattern) (see also erythema e calore), which becomes increasingly brownish under repetitive, further application of heat.
