Evolving clonal nevus-case report with serial digital dermatoscopy and dermatopathology.

Inskip M, Magee J - Dermatol Pract Concept (2015)

Bottom Line: We present a case of a clonal nevus arising from a previously banal melanocytic nevus over a 15-month period on the central back of a 30-year-old woman in a primary care skin cancer practice in Melbourne, Australia.Clinical, dermatoscopic and dermatopathologic images are presented.A search of the literature has discovered no previously published dermatoscopy images of an evolving clonal nevus.

ABSTRACT
We present a case of a clonal nevus arising from a previously banal melanocytic nevus over a 15-month period on the central back of a 30-year-old woman in a primary care skin cancer practice in Melbourne, Australia. Clinical, dermatoscopic and dermatopathologic images are presented. A search of the literature has discovered no previously published dermatoscopy images of an evolving clonal nevus.

Low power image shows a well circumscribed, wedge-shaped intradermal melanocytic proliferation comprised predominantly of bland nevus cells, however, with a central zone of more epithelioid cells, surrounded by a rim of hyperpigmented melanophages. (Copyright: ©2014 Inskip, Magee.)

Mentions: Examination of the histological sections revealed an intradermal proliferation comprised predominantly of bland nevus cells that matured with descent and tracked down around adnexal structures consistent with a congenital pattern. Centrally, there was a small population of somewhat more epithelioid appearing cells surrounded by pigmented melanophages. The cells did not exhibit marked pleomorphism, and no mitotic activity was noted. The findings were consistent with a benign clonal nevus (Figures 3 to 6).
