PMID:  3998224     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Generalized hyperpigmentation developed over 2 years in a 65-year-old woman. A diagnosis of pernicious anemia was made, and treatment with vitamin B12 led to complete reversion of her hyperpigmentation to normal. Literature pertinent to hyperpigmentation and its association with megaloblastic anemias is reviewed and several possible mechanisms are mentioned.
