Abstract :

Human skin color is variable around the world and ranges from almost black to nearly colorless. Studies have revealed that the differences between the skin of whites and blacks extend well beyond the degree of melanin pigmentation. For example, the structural differences include the skin thickness, water content and lipids. Darker skins may have an inherent tendency to show particular reaction patterns that are different from those seen in white skin. Taking one with another, lesions on different skin hues may also look differently, eg. red or brown lesions in white skin may appear black or purple in pigmented skin. If you mainly studied lesions on the white skin, diagnosing lesions on the dark skin can be of a challenge.
