Macule is Latin for spot. A rash consisting of macules is called a macular exanthem.
• A macule is a circumscribed area of change in skin color without elevation or depression.
• Macules are flat and cannot be palpated.
• Macules be well defined (sharply marginated) or diffuse.
• Macules can be of any size or color.
DIAGNOSIS AND DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS
Macules may be pigmented (brown, black, blue), skin colored (amelanotic), or red.
Pressure of a glass slide (diascopy) on the border of a red macule detects red blood cells.
If the redness remains under pressure from the slide, the lesion is purpuric, that is, it results from extravased red blood cells; if the redness disappears, the lesion is due to vascular dilation.
