"Café-au-lait spots" caused by vitiligo in McCune-Albright syndrome.

Café-au-lait spots, fibrous dysplasia of bone, and endocrine gland hyperactivity are the principal features of McCune-Albright syndrome (MAS). Café-au-lait spots appear at, or soon after, birth. We illustrate "café-au-lait spots" acquired during middle age in a patient with MAS that are an illusion caused by vitiligo. This 64-year-old woman is the oldest patient reported with this disorder.[1]
