Which of the following statements are false?
  •    Hyperpigmentation may be localized, as in the case of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or melasma, or more diffuse in its presentation.
  •    Diffuse hyperpigmentation tends to be associated with metabolic causes, certain medications, malignancy, or autoimmune or infectious etiologies.
  •    Since diffuse hyperpigmentation may be associated with malignancy or may be improved through treatment of the underlying disease process or insufficiency or elimination of the causative medication - it is important to identify the cause.
  •    Hyperpigmentation disorders are not associated with micronutrient deficiencies.
