Most skin lesions with these characteristics are actually harmless when evaluated by an expert using dermatoscopy. Short-term digital dermatoscopic imaging may be used in equivocal flat lesions to check for change over time. Naevi that remain suspicious for melanoma are excised for histopathology (diagnostic biopsy) B, Dermoscopy shows a skin-colored papule with numerous blood vessels and a few globules. (See Color Plate 6, Fig. 39.) Unna's and Miescher's nevi, which are variants of the intradermal nevus, have specific features
Dermal nevus, Unna type, characterized by a stereotypical cobblestone pattern: Dermal nevus, Unna type, exhibiting numerous comma vessels: Dermal nevus, Miescher type, displaying a pigment pseudonetwork due to the increased number of hair follicles on facial skin: Dermal nevus, Miescher type, with uneven pigment distribution and several comedo. The Miescher nevus (MN) is a relatively firm, brownish to skin-colored, dome-shaped, roundish papule that occurs most commonly on the head and neck. 1 It is not uncommon for a terminal hair to emanate from an MN. The MN tends to be quite stable, with little to no change detected during follow-up Dermoscopy is an optical observation device, by which we examine the detail of minute structures of melanocytic skin lesions. Clinicians usually use dermoscopy to make a diagnosis of benign nevi..
Abstract Miescher nevus is an acquired dermal melanocytic nevus with a smooth, dome shape. This benign nevus is commonly located on the face The reticular-homogeneous type with central hyperpigmentation in our dermoscopic classification refers to the hypermelanotic nevus described recently by Cohen et al 15 and to the new nevus of midlife described by Clark et al. 16 Another characteristic dermoscopic pattern of Clark nevi is a patchy distribution of pigmentation, simulating, at. Learning objectives. Describe dermoscopic features of atypical naevi; Introduction. Atypical naevi, Clark's naevi or 'funny-looking' moles, are common and are important simulants of melanoma.Melanoma may appear identical clinically and on dermoscopy, requiring biopsy to distinguish them. Stable naevi are much more common than malignant lesions, and so only those at highest risk should be. FIGURE 12.2.3 Dermoscopic photo of a Miescher nevus. A slight golden brown halo appears at the base of the nevus, which can help distinguish a Miescher nevus from a basal cell carcinoma. The arrowheads point to comma-shaped vessels, which are somewhat curved and branching vessels that can be commonly seen in both Unna and Miescher nevi Diffuse pigmentation and rare comedo-like openings are suggestive for Miescher nevus in this otherwise featureless nodular melanoma. Melanoma simulating recurrent nevus In this persistent melanoma a light-brown to gray-reddish diffuse pigmentation is visible adjacent to a surgical scar

Dermoscopy (dermatoscopy, epiluminescence microscopy, incident light microscopy, skin surface microscopy) is a non-invasive diagnostic technique for the in vivo observation of pigmented skin lesions, allowing a better visualization of surface and subsurface structures The recognition of the pseudonetwork of the face actually has no diagnostic significance, because it is found in solar lentigo, in the reticulated type of seborrheic keratosis but also in dermal nevus of the face (Miescher nevus) and in melanoma in situ on severely sun-damaged skin (lentigo maligna)
The dermal nevus of the face or Miescher nevus (first described by Miescher in 1956) has a rather distinctive clinical, dermoscopic and histopathologic appearance. (Clinically it is described as a broad based nodular lesion , usually on the face, smoothe surfaced and sometimes only mildly pigmented . The essence of pattern analysis is a structured description formulated using a clearly defined algorithmic method. The diagnostic method is structured in such a way that one starts by describing the most. Meyerson's phenomenon is defined as an eczematous halo surrounding a melanocytic nevus. 42 Eczematous nevi show a predilection for young healthy adults. 42 Histopathology reveals mostly compound nevi with parakeratosis, acanthosis and eventually epidermal spongiosis and a dermal lymphocytic infiltrate. 42 Dermoscopy is often challenging because. Dermatoscopy in trained hands may help. If in doubt, a suspicious or changing atypical nevus should be removed by excision biopsy. Partial biopsy is best avoided, as the test may miss a small focus of melanoma. A pathologist will usually make the correct diagnosis, although sometimes deeper levels and/or a second opinion may be required However, with the advent of dermoscopy there is a thinking that melanocytic naevi do not progress as above and instead originate as either: Acquired melanocytic naevi - the melanocytes are found predominantly at the dermal-epidermal junctional. Large numbers of lesions are an indicator of increased melanoma risk, not as a direct result of the.
The Unna nevus is a type of dermal nevus that occurs below the neck whereas the Miescher nevus occurs on the face. To understand The Unna nevus, bear in mind that a mole (nevus or naevus) is a benign nest of pigmented skin cells called melanocytes. The nests of an unna nevus are found down in the dermal layer of skin 7 Clinical features Clinically, Unna nevus is a soft polypoid or sessile, usually papillomatous lesion frequently located on the trunk, arms, and neck. The clinical features of Miescher nevus are rather firm, brownish to nearly skin-colored, dome-shaped papules that occur mostly on the face (17) Dermoscopy is a noninvasive, in vivo technique used for the examination of skin lesions. It is performed with a handheld instrument called a dermatoscope, which allows the visualization of subsurface skin structures in the epidermis, dermoepidermal junction, and upper dermis that are usually not visible to the naked eye subtypes, including Miescher's nevus, flat nevus, and Unna's nevus. Flat nevi are the most common clinical type. Miescher's and Unna's nevi have different clinical and histopathological features, making them easily distinguishable. We present a case of an Unna's nevus in the posterior of the scalp with unusual localization

Dermoscopy is a noninvasive technique that improves accuracy in the diagnosis of cutaneous lesions. The recognition and differential diagnosis of lentigo maligna (LM) and lentigo maligna melanoma (LMM) is challenging, especially in the early stages when there are no distinctive clinical features. (Miescher-type intradermal nevi), and are. Dermoscopy has allowed for a more detailed classification of nevi into subgroups. 5 With the use of this classification, it became obvious that nevi in a given individual tend to share the same dermoscopic pattern, an observation referred to as the predominant nevus pattern, moles breed true, or signature nevus. 5-7 In addition, the dermoscopic. Dermoscopy of a red Clark nevus revealing loosely distributed dotted (red dots) and comma-like (linear curved) vessels on a light brownish background. Hypopigmented Clark nevi in fair skin individuals often reveal dotted (red dots) or comma-like vessels (linear curved) within an elevated hypopigmented center that is surrounded by a flat.
Dermoscopy exhibit polymorphous atypical vessels consisting of kinked linear, hairpin and large coiled vessels. Typically, these vessels are of small caliber and appear on a reddish back- such as dermal nevus (particularly Miescher nevi of the face), epidermoid cyst, sebaceous hyperplasia, seborrheic keratosis, squamous cell carcinoma and. The classification by Ackerman describes Clark nevi, Miescher nevi, and Unna nevi as nevus subtypes with fairly reproducible clinically and histological features. It has to be clarified that the Ackerman definition of Clark nevi is not identical to the ill-defined term dysplastic nevus, as it was proposed by Clark and co-workers [ 20 ]
The term Unna nevus encompasses a clinical, dermoscopic, and histopathological distinctive variant of melanocytic nevus that corresponds to a papillomatous dermal or compound nevus. The other distinct variant of compound or dermal nevus of the face (Miescher nevus) is reviewed Chap.

Melanocytic nevi are benign neoplasms or hamartomas composed of melanocytes, the pigment-producing cells that constitutively colonize the epidermis. Melanocytes are derived from the neural crest and migrate during embryogenesis to selected ectodermal sites (primarily the skin and the CNS), but also to the eyes and the ears

Summary Background Junctional (flat) naevi predominate on the extremities, whereas dermal (raised) naevi are found primarily on the head, neck and trunk. Few studies have investigated the anatomical site prevalence of melanocytic naevi categorized using dermoscopy. Objectives To identify the prevalence of dermoscopic patterns and structures of naevi from the back and legs of adolescents. CONCLUSIONS: Dermoscopy allows identification of a morphologic pathway of modifications, probably typical for this type of melanocytic nevus in children, and therefore enables avoidance of surgical excision with attendant hypertrophic scarring in children the typical benign nevus and upward migration into the epidermis is a common finding (38.5%).12 A diagnosis of compound melanocytic nevus with ascending cells (acral nevus)' is an appropriate sign-out to convey this feature. While fully evolved pagetoid growth is concerning, often times the upward migration is dramatic (Fig. 1E) and has le

For this reason, when faced with conventional Spitz nevus in a child, in particular those under 12 years, with no atypical clinical or dermatoscopic features, the recommendation is for regular clinical follow-up only. 32 Nino et al. 33 proposed follow-up every 6 months for the first 2-3 years and then once a year. Furthermore, in this age. These 4 index cases were compared with 26 cases of ordinary plantar melanoma and with 117 cases of benign compound plantar nevi. Histologically, the similarity of areas of these 4 cases of plantar melanoma to compound plantar nevi (namely Miescher, Clark, or acral lentiginous nevus) is so close that it may prove misleading in the diagnostic. A malignant neoplasm derived from cells that are capable of forming melanin, which may occur in the skin of any part of the body, in the eye, or, rarely, in the mucous membranes of the genitalia, anus, oral cavity, or other sites. It occurs mostly in adults and may originate de novo or from a pigmented nevus or malignant lentigo
Screening for melanoma has been advocated for many years because early detection and excision have been regarded as the most important measure to lower mortality from that neoplasm. In the past decade, concern has been raised by epidemiologists that screening might result in excision chiefly of inconsequential cancer, i.e., melanomas that would never have progressed into life-threatening.
