MedLine Citation:
PMID:  16404649     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The development of linear hypopigmentation after intralesional or intraarticular injection of triamcinolone acetonide has been reported in the literature as a very rare side effect. This case report describes a patient with linear hypopigmentation and discusses the possible pathophysiology. Clinicians involved in the care of hypertrophic scars and keloids need to be aware of this rare side effect so that they can guide their patients appropriately. They need to understand the pathogenesis of this complication better so that it may become avoidable.
