Figure 1: Reproduced Figure 4 of the original study that was labeled as “dermoscopic image of dermal melasma” actually revealing dermoscopic artefacts of environmental particles (white arrows), cream residue (yellow arrow), nonuniform light-to-dark brown background (blue arrows), brown clods and blotches (green arrows), conspicuous perifollicular sparing (red arrows), and patchy erythema (black arrow). No telangiectasias or arciform structures are visible. The area of examination and the magnification and polarization of the dermoscope have not been mentioned
