Arch Dermatol. 1985;121(9):1164-1166. doi:10.1001/archderm.1985.01660090078018

• Hypopigmentation of hair and freckles occurred in a patient receiving chloroquine sulfate therapy. This patient had a severe congenital renal failure that presumably increased plasma and tissue levels of the drug substantially, accounting for the hypopigmentation.
