We report 2 elderly patients with facial lentigo maligna who experienced complete regression, both clinically and histopathologically, after once-daily topical treatment with tazarotene 0.1% gel for 6 to 8 months. After a follow-up period of 18 and 30 months, no recurrence was observed. We believe that tazarotene might be considered as an alternative medical approach in selected patients with lentigo maligna.
