pallor

Undue paleness of the skin, observable also in certain mucous membranes, such as the CONJUNCTIVA and the lining of the mouth. Transient pallor may result from constriction of the blood vessels near the surface. Longer-term pallor may be due to ANAEMIA or lack of exposure to sunlight. Permanent pallor may be caused by ALBINISM.
