  • [Title] [A new case of nevus oligemicus].
  • [Transliterated title] Un nuevo caso de nevus oligemicus.
  • Nevus oligemicus is a rare lesion characterized by selective vasoconstriction of the deep dermal vascular plexus compared with the superficial one.
  • It has been suggested that it may be caused by increased sympathetic tone in the deep dermal vascular plexus or an abnormality of hormone receptors, which is why it is considered a functional nevus.
  • Clinically, it presents as an asymptomatic, fixed, livid erythematous macule with a striking decrease in local temperature compared with surrounding healthy skin.
  • Measurement of the surface temperature of the patch revealed a decrease of up to 2.5 degrees C with respect to surrounding skin.
  • The fixed nature of the lesions, consistent histopathology, and the finding of localized hypothermia allowed the diagnosis of nevus oligemicus.
  • Our case is the eleventh case of nevus oligemicus reported in the literature.

  • The dysplastic naevus syndrome increases the risk of cutaneous (RR: 4.36; CI: 1.84-10.36) as well as uveal melanoma (RR: 4.22; CI: 1.81-9.84).
  • A significantly higher occurrence rate of conjunctival naevi (3.2% vs. 0%; p=0.029), choroidal naevi (5.2% vs. 0.7%; p=0.023) and iris freckles (17.1% vs. 5.6%; p=0.002) could be detected in the dysplastic naevus syndrome patients compared to subjects in the control group.
  • The presence of cutaneous dysplastic naevi in uveal melanoma patients increases the risk of the prognostically worse--epitheloid or mixed--forms of uveal melanoma (RR: 5.97%; CI: 1.61-22.14), compared to patients without cutaneous atypical naevi.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Atypical moles.
  • Atypical moles can be distinguished visually by clinical features of size greater than 6 mm in diameter, color variegation, indistinct borders, and textured surface.
  • All patients who have atypical moles should be counselled about sun avoidance, screening of family members, and regular skin checks at least once per year.
  • Total body photography and dermoscopy can aid in regular skin monitoring for changes in atypical moles and the emergence of new lesions.
  • The presence of multiple atypical moles increases the risk of melanoma.
  • The greatest risk of melanoma is in patients who have more than 50 atypical moles and two or more family members with melanoma (familial atypical mole and melanoma syndrome).
  • Atypical moles should be removed when they have features suggestive of malignant transformation.
  • Removing all atypical moles is neither necessary nor cost effective.

  • [Title] [Six cases of nevus oligemicus].
  • [Transliterated title] Nevus oligemicus. Aportación de seis casos.
  • Hamartoma or nevus oligemicus is an uncommon lesion that is characterized by selective vasoconstriction of the deep dermal vascular plexus with respect to the superficial one and whose cause has not been clearly established.
  • This selective vasoconstriction gives rise to fixed, acquired, and asymptomatic lesions in the form of livid, erythematous macules that are typically cold to touch compared with surrounding skin.
  • We report the cases of 6 young men with lesions clinically compatible with nevus oligemicus on the abdomen and flanks.
  • Measurement of the surface temperature of the lesion revealed a decrease of up to 2.5 degrees C with respect to healthy surrounding skin and allowed a definitive diagnosis to be made.
  • In our opinion, nevus oligemicus is an underdiagnosed lesion that is much more common than has been reported in the literature.

  • BACKGROUND: Diagnosis of naevus lesions may be complex where they contain little or no pigmentation.
  • Naevus spilus (or naevus on naevus) is, generally, readily identified by the difference in pigmentation between overlying and underlying naevi and healthy skin.
  • Malignant transformation of naevus spilus is rare.
  • We report two cases of melanoma in which surgical procedures revealed underlying melanocyte lesions, diagnosed at histology but undetectable on clinical examination.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Two patients were operated for melanoma in which surgery, at a site remote from the melanoma, suggested incomplete relapse despite the fact that previous clinical examination had indicated healthy skin.
  • A diagnosis was made of melanoma in invisible naevus spilus.
  • DISCUSSION: Diagnosis of melanoma in invisible naevus spilus may be suspected where several naevi are found together in a specific area.

  • INTRODUCTION: Most of specialists involved in giant congenital nevi (GCN) care, agree that the risk of melanoma is probably not significant enough to warrant the prophylactic removal of all those lesions.
  • All nevus in the scalp between 3 and 5 cms were removed with a primary closure in order to avoid future need of scalp expansion.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Despite the lack of international consensus regarding the appropriate timing for large or giant congenital nevi excision, a selection of patients and their families can benefit from early surgical removal.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Impact of concomitant immunosuppression on the presentation and prognosis of patients with melanoma.
  • : 9070 Background: Melanoma has been reported to be susceptible to immune control.
  • METHODS: We examined the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Cutaneous Oncology Program database for pts with immune suppression at the time of melanoma diagnosis.
  • RESULTS: 19 pts were identified with melanoma and concomitant immune suppression in a database of 1820 melanoma pts.
  • Melanoma stages at diagnosis were in situ 1, IB 7, IIA 1, IIB 1, IIIB 3, IIIC 5, and IV 1.
  • In addition, more cases appeared to have an amelanotic primary (21% vs. 5.4%) or an atypical mole syndrome (21% vs 10.2%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Compared to the general melanoma population, pts with concomitant immune suppression appear more likely to be female, have an amelanotic primary or atypical mole syndrome and more advanced disease at presentation.
  • Thus, diagnosis and treatment of a primary melanoma at an early stage appears especially important in an immunosuppressed population.

  • [Title] [Melanoma within naevus spilus: 5 cases].
  • [Transliterated title] Mélanome sur naevus spilus: 5 observations.
  • BACKGROUND: Nevus spilus is defined as café-au-lait macules with dark maculopapular speckles.
  • Histologically, it has the aspect of lentigo associated with nevocellular nevus.
  • There are 3 types of nevus spilus: small or medium-sized (<20 cm), giant and zosteriform.
  • Malignant transformation of nevus spilus is rare.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: We analyzed the cases of 5 patients presenting melanoma within nevus spilus as well as 20 published cases.
  • The evaluation criteria were: for nevus spilus: size, type, topography, age of onset and presence of dysplastic nevi within the nevus spilus; for melanoma: clinical aspect, histological type, thickness, level and age at diagnosis.
  • The presence of other risk factors for melanoma was noted.
  • RESULTS: The 14 women and 11 men had a mean age of 49 years at melanoma diagnosis.
  • Type of nevus spilus was: small or medium-sized (15 cases), zosteriform (6 cases) and giant (4 cases).
  • Only 3 nevi spili were<4 cm in diameter.
  • Nevus spilus was present since birth (11 cases), childhood (7 cases), after the age of 20 years (3 cases) and was unspecified in 4 cases.
  • Three of our five patients had other risk factors for melanoma.
  • Two patients were presenting 2 melanomas within nevus spilus.
  • The histological type of melanoma was not specified in 8 cases but SSM was the most common type (13 cases).
  • CONCLUSION: The following criteria appeared to be associated with risk of developing melanoma in nevus spilus patients: nevus spilus present since birth, nevus spilus over 4 cm in diameter, and giant or zosteriform nevus spilus.
  • Development of melanoma within nevus spilus is a rare event.
  • Consequently, guidelines for follow-up of nevus spilus cannot be defined.

  • [Transliterated title] Naevus de Spitz desmoplasique : analyse histopathologique et comparative avec le mélanome desmoplasique.
  • INTRODUCTION: Desmoplastic Spitz nevus is a rare variant of spitzoid tumours characterized by dermal proliferation of large epitheliod and/or fusiform melanocytes within a desmoplastic stroma, comprising thick, eosinophilic collagen bundles.
  • Histologically, this entity may be mistaken for cutaneous fibrous tumours or desmoplastic melanoma.
  • To establish useful histological criteria for differential diagnosis of desmoplastic Spitz nevus, we conducted a retrospective study comparing data concerning the clinical, demographic and histological characteristics of desmoplastic Spitz nevus and desmoplastic melanoma.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: We reviewed the slides for 28 cases of desmoplastic Spitz nevus and for 13 cases of desmoplastic melanoma obtained from the files of Pinkus Dermatopathology Laboratory (Monroe, MI, USA) during the period 1993-2005.
  • RESULTS: Desmoplastic Spitz nevus was more common in women (sex ratio M/F=0.4) and younger patients (mean age: 28.2 years) whereas the mean age of patients with desmoplastic melanoma was significantly higher (mean age: 75 years).
  • From a histopathological point of view, symmetry, circumscription, melanocytic maturation and involvement of adnexal structure were significantly more frequent in desmoplastic Spitz nevi.
  • The presence of melanocytic junctional nests associated with discohesive cells, variations in size and shape of the nests, lentiginous melanocytic proliferation, actinic elastosis, pagetoid spread, dermal mitosis, perineural involvement and brisk inflammatory infiltrate were significantly more frequent in desmoplastic melanoma.
  • CONCLUSION: The combination of architectural and cytological features was useful in differentiating desmoplastic Spitz nevus from desmoplastic melanoma.

  • OBJECTIVE: Establishing the frequency of nodal naevi in lymph-node dissections from patients with a melanoma who have undergone a sentinel-node procedure and/or regional node dissection and distinguishing naevi from melanoma metastases.
  • METHODS: Patients with a nodal naevus in the sentinel node were selected from a database containing clinical and pathological data on all 65 patients who underwent a sentinel-node procedure for melanoma at our hospital between 1998 and 2001.
  • Also data from the pathology department on the case frequency and the nodal frequency of nodal naevi in the total number of patients with melanoma in whom a sentinel-node procedure and/or therapeutic node dissection had been carried out during the same period, were examined.
  • RESULTS: In 5 patients a nodal naevus was found in the sentinel node.
  • Distinction from melanoma metastases was made by the use of H&E colouring, localization, architectural and morphological features of the melanocyte cell clusters in the lymph node and sometimes after consultation with the National Melanoma Panel.
  • CONCLUSION: Nodal naevi in lymph nodes were not uncommon in people with melanoma and can be distinguished from the micrometastases from melanoma.

  • BACKGROUND: In common intradermal or compound nevi, nevocytes may be associated with other kinds of cells, tissues or lesions.
  • CASE-REPORTS AND RESULTS: In 11 nevi (10 intradermal or compound nevi and 1 blue nevus), we observed striking hyperplasia of the elastic fibers strictly limited to the nevi, with normal aspect of the elastic fibers in the surrounding reticular dermis.
  • These fibers were thicker than normal elastic fibers and showed tight connexions with nevus cells.
  • It was correlated neither with the age and sex of patients nor with the site of the excised nevi.
  • It was seen in 0.1% of excised nevi.
  • DISCUSSION: Hyperplasia of elastic fibers in some common nevi is a curiosity which may be classified together with other vascular, nervous, epithelial or connective twin lesions occasionally associated with the nevocytic nevi.
  • It has to be added to the list of so-called "twin nevi".

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Inflammatory juvenile conjunctival nevus (IJCN)].
  • BACKGROUND: Pathologists may occasionally have difficulties in reliably assessing the dignity of tumour cells in histological sections, especially in nevi with junctional activity.
  • PATIENT HISTORY: This case history of a boy suffering from an inflammatory juvenile conjunctival nevus (IJCN) is reported with a follow-up period of 25 years.
  • Seven years after first surgical treatment of a histologically proven nevus, a recurrent pigmented lesion within the former operation area aroused the suspicion of it being a malignant melanoma.
  • The histological diagnosis performed by a pathologist resulted in a malignant melanoma.
  • This lesion again aroused another strong clinical suspicion of malignant transformation into a melanoma.
  • However, the histological examination of the biopsy at this time only showed benign nevus cells and areas of conjunctival melanosis without atypia.
  • DISCUSSION: Especially in young patients, IJCN must be regarded as an independent type of nevus, which might lead even experts in ophthalmic pathology to over-diagnose this lesion as a malignant melanoma.
  • A reappraisal of the former histological specimens of the first recurrent tumour by other pathologists came to the conclusion that the initial diagnosis of melanoma could not be maintained.
  • Nevertheless, we also strongly recommend follow-up examinations at regular intervals in cases of IJCN since we are aware of the fact that melanocytic tumours of the conjunctiva behave unpredictably.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Dysplastic melanocytic nevus].
  • The dysplastic melanocytic nevus remains an issue of controversy despite extensive investigations.
  • On clinical grounds the term atypical melanocytic nevus should be used, while dysplastic melanocytic nevus describes histological characteristics.
  • The association with melanoma is complex.
  • With the clinical picture, dermatoscopy and molecular biological or genetic examinations one can often not distinguish a histological dysplastic nevus from a melanoma.
  • In patients with large amounts of melanocytic nevi it is important to assess the total melanoma risk, the need for patient surveillance and motivate the patient for self-examination.
  • In high-risk patients the amount of benign melanocytic nevi is increased and many clinically atypical and microscopically dysplastic nevi can be found.
  • Because of the rising incidence of melanoma and the lack of therapeutic options in disseminated disease, the surveillance of high risk patients, the early detection of melanoma and excision play a key role in patient management.

  • [Title] Molecular pathogenesis of malignant melanoma: a different perspective from the studies of melanocytic nevus and acral melanoma.
  • The Clark model for melanoma progression emphasizes a series of histopathological changes beginning from benign melanocytic nevus to melanoma via dysplastic nevus.
  • Several models of the genetic basis of melanoma development and progression are based on this Clark's multi-step model, and predict that the acquisition of a BRAF mutation can be a founder event in melanocytic neoplasia.
  • However, our recent investigations have challenged this view, showing the polyclonality of BRAF mutations in melanocytic nevi.
  • Furthermore, it is suggested that many melanomas, including acral and mucosal melanomas, arise de novo, not from melanocytic nevus.
  • While mutations of the BRAF gene are frequent in melanomas on non-chronic sun damaged skin which are prevalent in Caucasians, acral and mucosal melanomas harbor mutations of the KIT gene as well as the amplifications of cyclin D1 or cyclin-dependent kinase 4 gene.
  • Amplifications of the cyclin D1 gene are detected in normal-looking 'field melanocytes', which represent a latent progression phase of acral melanoma that precedes the stage of atypical melanocyte proliferation in the epidermis.
  • Based on these observations, we propose an alternative genetic progression model for melanoma.

  • INTRODUCTION: Verrucous epidermal nevus are benign epidermal hyperplasias.
  • The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of continuous carbon dioxide laser in the treatment of verrucous epidermal nevus.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: It was a retrospective study concerning all patients treated for epidermal verrucous nevus by carbon dioxide laser from 1991 to 2003.
  • The epidermal verrucous nevus was situated on the neck or on the head for 62% of them (n = 13).
  • Among these 21 patients, 86% (n = 19) estimated their skin as "cured" or "nearly normal" or "much improved".
  • This study shows that continuous wave carbon dioxide laser is an easy and effective treatment of verrucous epidermal nevus.

  • BACKGROUND: The notion that only malignant melanoma cells circulate and diffuse is shared by oncologists and pathologists.
  • OBSERVATIONS: During a study of identification of circulating melanoma cells using ISET, blood samples from a 69-year-old man with an atypical melanocytic lesion on his back were evaluated.
  • The morphological features were similar to those of the excised skin tissue specimen, and the patient was subsequently diagnosed as having a congenital melanocytic nevus.
  • CONCLUSION: The finding that benign nevus cells may circulate in blood brings into question the value of tyrosinase or other melanocytic markers as a molecular surrogate for circulating melanoma cells.

  • BACKGROUND: Nevus comedonicus is a rare disease and diagnosis is made chiefly on clinical grounds.
  • It may occur in isolation, or in rare cases, it may be combined with other congenital malformations to constitute nevus comedonicus syndrome.
  • Clinical diagnosis of nevus comedonicus was confirmed by histological examination of the skin.
  • DISCUSSION: Nevus comedonicus is one of the rarest forms of cutaneous nevus.
  • This case is original as regards the extent and topography of the nevus covering the left side of the patient's body and its association with congenital cataract potentially indicating nevus comedonicus syndrome.
  • This syndrome is extremely rare and belongs to a large group of epidermal nevus syndromes characterised by association of nevus and extracutaneous malformations, particularly ocular, skeletal and neurological.

  • [Title] Recurrent hydatidiform moles.
  • Hydatidiform moles (HMs) are abnormal conceptions of excessive trophoblast development resulting in abnormal human pregnancies with no embryo and cystic degeneration of the chorionic villi.
  • Hydatidiform moles occur quite frequently and although recurrence is rare, women who have experienced one molar pregnancy should be aware that they are at an increased risk of a further molar pregnancy in comparison to other women in the general population.
  • In these women the recurrent molar pregnancies may be non-familial, referred to as recurrent molar hydatidiform moles in this article, or may result from an inherited predisposition, which we refer to as familial recurrent hydatidiform moles.
  • We use the term familial biparental hydatidiform moles (FBHMs) for cases in which the parental contribution to the moles has been investigated and found to be biparental.
  • This review considers our current understanding about the aetiology of HMs and explores the mechanisms of both types of recurrent hydatidiform moles.

  • Non-organoid non-epidermolytic (keratinocytic) epidermal nevi are benign congenital skin lesions following the lines of Blaschko.
  • The occurrence of epithelial tumors in epidermal nevi of this type is very rare, and it remains elusive whether these lesions are clonally related or represent a simple collision of independent tumors.
  • We report a case of a patient who developed 2 basal cell carcinomas in an extensive epidermal nevus on the trunk.
  • Molecular analysis of a biopsy containing both basal cell carcinoma and epidermal nevus revealed a PIK3CA mutation.
  • Further analysis suggested that this mutation is present in the basal cell carcinoma rather than in the epidermal nevus.

  • Congenital melanocytic nevi carry a risk for malignant transformation into melanoma, therefore early detection of suspicious features is crucial to reduce mortality rates.
  • Dermoscopy improves the early detection of melanoma while reducing the number of unnecessary excisions of benign pigmented skin lesions.
  • Dermoscopically, congenital melanocytic nevi are often characterized by the presence of a cobblestone pattern, but to date, little is known about the dermoscopic features of acral congenital melanocytic nevi.
  • We report an acral congenital melanocytic nevus typified by the presence of three different dermoscopic patterns that are commonly seen in acquired melanocytic nevi of palms and soles.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Acquired melanocytic naevus in childhood vulval pemphigoid.
  • BACKGROUND: Eruptive epidermolysis bullosa (EB) naevi comprise a subset of melanocytic naevi with atypical features that characteristically occur in areas of former blistering in patients suffering from hereditary EB.
  • In the course of the disease, she developed an atypical melanocytic naevus on the left labium at a site of former blistering.
  • Although its clinical and dermoscopic features resembled malignant melanoma, the lesion completely regressed clinically during the 24-month follow-up.
  • CONCLUSION: This is the first report describing the development of a melanocytic naevus at sites of blistering in an auto-immune subepidermal blistering disease in childhood.
  • Our observation extends the spectrum of disorders, in addition to the group of congenital EB, in which 'eruptive' atypical melanocytic naevi may occur.

  • The major challenge in relation to atypical nevi lies in the controversy of defining its nomenclature, clinical diagnosis, dermoscopic criteria, histopathological diagnosis and molecular aspects.
  • This review aims at bringing knowledge, facilitating comprehension and clarifying doubts about atypical nevus.

  • [Title] Epidermal nevus syndrome and didymosis aplasticosebacea.
  • The epidermal nevus syndrome is a disease complex consisting of the association of an epidermal nevus with various developmental abnormalities of the skin, eyes, nervous, skeletal, cardiovascular, and urogenital systems.
  • The epidermal nevi are classified according to their predominant component; nevus sebaceus (sebaceous glands), nevus comedonicus (hair follicles), and nevus verrucosus (keratinocytes).
  • We report a neonate who presented with a nevus sebaceus on the scalp and face as well as a coloboma and dermoid on his left eye.
  • Within the sebaceous nevus on the scalp, circumscribed lesions of aplasia cutis congenita were detected, which is consistent with the recently proposed term in the literature didymosis aplasticosebacea.

  • Congenital melanocytic naevus and neurofibromatosis type 1 are distinct clinical entities.
  • A diagnosis of neurofibromatosis is difficult to make in the presence of a congenital melanocytic naevus because nodules may arise in the naevus that have similar histopathological appearances to neurofibromata.
  • A case is reported where nodules arising from a naevus were examined histologically and were found to have neurofibroma and schwannoma like elements but strong positivity for S100 protein in keeping with dermal melanocytes.

  • Desmoplastic hairless hypopigmented nevus (DHHN) is the name Ruiz-Maldonado et al. gave to a new variant of giant congenital melanocytic nevus characterized clinically by a hard ligneous consistency, absence of hair and progressive loss of pigment.
  • We describe a 6-year-old boy with a hard hairless pigmented congenital nevus involving the lumbosacral area, buttocks, perineum and scrotum.
  • During the first years of life, the nevus showed a progressive reduction in colour, size and consistency.
  • These changes continued until the age of four when a well-demarcated tumour appeared, within the nevus, on the right buttock.
  • Histologically, nevus cells of normal appearance between thick collagen bundles were present.
  • The nevus has continued to involute to date.
  • An immune response against the melanocytes of the nevus may explain this type of evolution.

  • INTRODUCTION: Atypical melanocytic nevi are acquired melanocytic lesions that were described for the first time by Clark in studies of melanocytic nevi in patients with melanomas.
  • Today, the use of dermatoscopy has made identification of this type of nevus much easier.
  • OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to study the correlation between the clinical, dermatoscopic, and histopathologic findings of melanocytic nevi and compare our findings with those of previous studies.
  • We also aimed to investigate the value of dermatoscopy for identifying atypical melanocytic nevi.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: In this cross-sectional, observational study, 200 melanocytic lesions were analyzed in 166 patients examined between January 1, 2005 and December 31, 2005.
  • We then determined the agreement between diagnoses and assessed the value of dermatoscopy for identifying atypical melanocytic melanoma.
  • Dermatoscopy improved the accuracy of clinical diagnosis of atypical melanocytic nevus.

  • PURPOSE: To report an association between polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) and choroidal nevus in two patients.
  • METHODS: Two patients with subretinal exudation associated with a choroidal nevus had a complete ophthalmologic examination, slit-lamp biomicroscopy, color fundus photography, fluorescein angiography (FA), and indocyanine green angiography (ICG).
  • RESULTS: In the two eyes of the two patients with choroidal nevus, choroidal neovascularization with PCV-like characteristics was detected by ICG angiography.
  • CONCLUSIONS: PCV-like vascular changes can be associated with choroidal nevus, and ICG can help delineate the nature of the neovascularization in patients with choroidal nevus.

  • [Title] Sclerosing nevus with pseudomelanomatous features.
  • BACKGROUND: Among the pigmented lesions with a central area of scar, we found a group of cases histologically characterized by striking architectural alteration of the melanocytic component, but with no cytological atypia and mitotically quiescent.
  • METHODS: We selected 19 of these melanocytic neoplasms that had the following characteristics: (a) a clinically evident whitish central area suggestive of regression (with no history of a previous surgical procedure or trauma), (b) histological features of fibrous scar-like tissue at the center of the lesion, (c) the presence of large, confluent and unusually shaped melanocytic nests at the dermoepidermal junction and in the dermis, (d) a pagetoid spread of melanocytes above the epidermal basal layer and (e) remnants of nevus tissue at the border of the scar.
  • Histologically, these neoplasms have important similarities with the so-called recurrent nevus, nevi on lichen sclerosus and nevi developed during or following cutaneous inflammatory and sclerosing processes.
  • The origin of the scar in each case was obscure but was probably related to minor unnoticed trauma or to chronic friction on a nevus.
  • In few cases, the fibrosis was probably the result of partial regression of the nevus or a sequel to folliculitis.
  • The pseudomelanomatous features appear to be related to the presence of the scar, as already reported for nevi that are involved in fibrotic or scarring processes.
  • In our study, the nevi involved in the fibrotic process were congenital nevi and common or dysplastic nevi.
  • One case was a Spitz nevus.
  • CONCLUSIONS: From our data we concluded that, despite their worrisome clinical and histological aspect, the lesions described in this case series were most probably benign melanocytic nevi, involved by a fibrotic process combined with pseudomelanomatous proliferation.

  • [Title] Invasive mole: Indonesian perspective.
  • OBJECTIVE: To share our experiences concerning the characteristics of invasive mole (IM), including transformation and progression, its propensity to perforate, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and prognosis.
  • Seventy and three tenths percent were preceded by complete mole, 18.5% by partial mole and 11.2% by uncertain pathology.
  • Ultrasound findings in 20 cases were: 9 (45%) diagnosed as IM, 8 (40%) as choriocarcinoma, 2 (10%) as hydatidiform mole and 1 (5%) doubtful.
  • CONCLUSION: IM should be suspected in multiparous patients with a history of mole and short transformation period.
  • The method of follow-up is similar to mole.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Effect of neonatal phototherapy on melanocytic nevus count in children.
  • BACKGROUND: Melanocytic nevus is the strongest risk factor for the development of cutaneous melanoma.
  • Fair skin and exposure to UV light, especially in childhood, are correlated with the development of childhood nevi.
  • OBJECTIVE: To assess the role of blue light neonatal phototherapy used to treat hyperbilirubinemia in nevus acquisition in childhood.
  • Selection criteria included the following: age, 8 to 9 years; and skin type, less than IV by Fitzpatrick classification (ie, brown, always tans, rarely burns).
  • MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Total body nevus count in children, phenotypic characteristics, solar exposure, and demographic data were assessed by the same dermatologist.
  • RESULTS: A comparison of both groups showed that the number of nevi larger than 2 mm was significantly higher in the exposed group.
  • The mean (SD) nevus count was 3.5 (3.05; median, 3.0) per child in the exposed group, compared with 1.45 (1.99; median, 1.0) per child in the nonexposed group (P(mean) = .02 and P(median) = .01).
  • Multivariate analysis confirmed these results, with a statistically significant correlation with nevus count, especially with nevi 2 to 5 mm in greatest diameter.
  • The association between neonatal phototherapy and nevus count was not significant for nevi smaller than 2 mm or larger than 5 mm.
  • Solar exposure, especially during vacations, was strongly associated with total nevus count and all nevus sizes (2-5 mm, <2 mm, and >5 mm).
  • At univariate analysis, hair color was significantly associated with nevus size smaller than 2 mm (P(mean) = .03).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Intensive neonatal phototherapy is a strong risk factor for nevus development in childhood.
  • While childhood development of nevi is correlated with fair skin and solar light exposure, and having many nevi is a recognized risk factor in persons with melanoma, we must be careful not to equate childhood nevi development in response to neonatal phototherapy with an individual's risk of developing melanoma.
  • Exposed children should undergo dermatologic preventive measures and surveillance for the development of melanoma.
