Introduction. Nevus spilus (NS) is clinically characterised by multiple pigmented macules or papules within a pigmented patch. It is called various names: NS, speckled lentiginous nevus, zosteriform lentiginous nevus, and spots on a spot . It may be congenital or acquired The lesion was a lentiginous patch with darker brown pigmented macules in favor of a nevus spilus. Dermoscopy revealed darker brown areas with a reticulo-globular pattern in favor of melanocytic nevi. The background was light brown and reticular. Nevus spilus are present at birth or childhood
Background: Nevus spilus (NS) defines a café-au-lait macule with superimposed maculopapular speckles. Although the café-au-lait macule often presents at birth, the darker pigmented speckles increase in number and size during a period of several years 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 (DS) is an ex vivo noninvasive technique for analyzing subsurface skin structures which helps in confirming the diagnosis and identifying early changes of cutaneous malignancy Nevus spilus symptoms. Clinically, nevus spilus generally consists of a single non-hairy lesion, with a medium size of 4.3 cm (± 3.5 cm) 24).Spotting within the lesion is more often macular than papular, sized 1-3 mm, and develop during a period of months to years 25).Nevus spilus can be divided into macular and papular variants, and further into three different size groups: small (<1.5 cm. . Figure 3.

Capillary malformation (CM), usually referred to as a port-wine stain or nevus flammeus, is the most common type of vascular malformation
Naevus spilus is caused by a localised defect in melanoblasts (the forerunners of pigment cells) that populate a particular area of the skin. There is some controversy as to whether naevus spilus represents a birthmark known as a variant of a congenital melanocytic naevus, or it is acquired later on in life Distribution. Can affect any body site. Morphologically the lesion has two components. A patch of skin that is only subtly darker than the surrounding skin (resembling a café-au-lait patch), which can reach several cm in diameter. Within the patch develop numerous darker macules and papules, 1-3 mm in diameter Weinberg JM, Schutzer PJ, Harris RM, Tangoren IA, Although ink spot lentigo is regarded as a benign Sood S, Rudolph RI.

Nevus spilus is a fairly rare entity, with incidence estimated to be 0.2% to 2.3% among the general population. 5 The malignant potential for development of melanoma within a nevus spilus is currently unknown, but Brito and colleagues reported a risk of 0.13% to 0.20%, with greater risk in a nevus spilus larger than 4 cm (medium to giant) and. Spitz nevus (Epithelioid and Spindle-Cell Nevus) is an uncommon, benign, melanocytic nevus that is usually acquired and has histologic features that overlap with those of melanoma.Spitz nevi were previously diagnosed as melanomas due to their similar appearance under a microscope, until it was found that they did not show malignant behavior Dermoscopy of nevus spilus.

NEVUS SPILUS. This entity, which is also known as speckled lentiginous nevus, zosteriform lentiginous nevus, or spots on a spot nevus, is usually a solitary lesion composed of a background, slightly pigmented, macule with multiple hyperpigmented papules most frequently found in the torso and extremities. It can be present at birth or develop at. Spitz nevus (or Spitz tumor) is an uncommon melanocytic lesion composed of large epithelioid and/or spindled cells. It typically presents in childhood or adolescence as a sharply circumscribed, dome-shaped, pink-red papule or plaque most commonly located on the face or lower extremities ( picture 1 ).

Dermoscopy revealed a globular pattern associated with a central homogenous pattern (darker area) in favor of a benign combined nevus. A combined nevus is a nevus which contains two or more components, most often with 2 distinct colors. In some cases combined nevus consists of a typical blue nevus associated with another kind of nevus Dermoscopy reveals uniform rounded structures with prominent blood vessels b. Pigmented Spitz may show relatively structureless or globular pigmentation c. Approximately 20 cases of malignant melanoma arising in a nevus spilus have been reported in the literature.

It is present from birth (congenital) or is noticeable soon after birth. The nevus may be small in infants, but it will usually grow at the same rate the body. A melanocytic nevus (also known as nevocytic nevus, nevus-cell nevus and commonly as a mole) is a type of melanocytic tumor that contains nevus cells. Some sources equate the term mole with melanocytic nevus, but there are also sources that equate the term mole with any nevus form. The majority of moles appear during the first two decades of a person's life, with about one in every 100.
Although spilus nevi are generally benign, they must be monitored closely so that any changes that suggest malignancy can be detected early. 1-3,6,12 This is especially true for dysplastic giant congenital nevi and those with an atypical appearance. 9 Dermoscopy and image storage can be helpful for monitoring. 12 If there is any doubt, biopsy.
Benign melanocytic nevus: (A) dermoscopy and (B) One patient each with nevus spilus had nevus of Ota and a melanocytic nevus in association-only one such association each has been reported in the literature.15,16 Brown and Gorlin demonstrated oral mucosal involvement in a case of nevus unius lateris.13 Lesions of nevus sebaceous can extend. Nevus (plural nevi) is a nonspecific medical term for a visible, circumscribed, chronic lesion of the skin or mucosa. The term originates from nævus, which is Latin for birthmark; however, a nevus can be either congenital (present at birth) or acquired.Common terms, including mole, birthmark, and beauty mark, are used to describe nevi, but these terms do not distinguish specific types of. The unna nevus is a soft skin-colour, pink or brown protruding lump that can resemble a raspberry. The mole can be clearly felt as it protrudes from the surface of the skin. Take a close look at the surface, and you may notice a cobblestone appearance, most easily appreciated with dermoscopy. A hair is often seen protruding from the mole Nevus spilus AKA.

Under dermoscopy, the background of a benign nevus spilus appears homogeneous tan in color and may exhibit a faint, delicate network. Hyperpigmented macules or papules within a SPLN generally show dermoscopic features that correlate with the type of nevus present (refer to the 'Acquired melanocytic nevi' section below) A 31-year-old white man presented with dysplastic nevus syndrome (DNS) and nevus spilus (NS) on the middle left aspect of his back. There was no personal or family history of melanoma noted, and the patient underwent total body mapping and digital dermoscopy. During the examination of the patient's skin, the dermatologist noted a lesion within the NS with irregular borders, varied coloration. Dermoscopy seems to provide considerable diagnostic aid in differentiating Becker's nevus from its differentials like congenital melanocytic nevus, CALM, and nevus spilus (). Dermoscopy can substitute biopsy in cosmetically important areas
Nevus Spilus, also known as nevus on nevus, speckled lentiginous or zosteriform nevus, is considered an uncommon variant of melanocytic nevus, occurring with a frequency of 1-2%.

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 Nevus (or nevi if multiple) is a nonspecific medical term for chronic, visible, restricted, and chronic lesions of the skin or mucosa. The term is derived from nÃƒÆ'Ã‚|vus , which is Latin for birthmark; however, the nevus can be either innate (present at birth) or acquired.Common terms, including mol , birthmarks , and beauty signs , are used to describe nevi, but the term does not. Nevus spilus has been associated with other anomalies of vascular, central nervous system, or connective tissue origin. Multiple granular tumors and nevus flammeus have been associated with a giant nevus spilus. Large varieties of nevus spilus may be associated with muscle atrophy, other neurological disorders, and phacomatosis. Dermoscopy of Nevus Comedonicus.
