The purpose of this paper is to highlight the risk of early malignant transformation in infants with giant congenital melanocytic nevi (GN) and demonstrate the potential for earlier intervention with aggressive surgery. We describe the case of a child born with a GN who developed a metastatic melanoma early in life, despite early commencement of resection of the nevus. This is contrasted against a second case of a child in which a more radical management was conducted. Despite early commencement of serial resection of the GN, the first child in this series died of metastatic melanoma prior to complete excision of the nevus...

Pediatric melanoma, although rare, is the most common skin cancer in children. Our current knowledge on pediatric melanoma incidence trends is expanding, as several studies have addressed this issue with conflicting results. Known risk factors for pediatric melanoma include family history of melanoma, a previous history of malignancy, large congenital nevi, numerous melanocytic nevi, sunburns, increased UV exposure and a sun-sensitive phenotype. In younger children melanoma more often presents with atypical features, such as a changing, amelanotic or uniformly colored, often bleeding lesion, not fulfilling in most cases the conventional ABCDE criteria...

Benign melanocytic nevi are slowly growing acquiredor congenital tumors with varied morphology,commonly encountered in dermatology clinics. Anytumor with rapid clinical growth must be assessedcarefully in order to exclude malignancy. We report awoman with a histopathologically benign intradermalnevus that presented as a rapidly evolving largecutaneous mass on the ear. Owing to the discrepancybetween the clinical and histopathological findings,an extensive histopathological work-up involvingmany deeper sections, immunohistochemical stains,and fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) analysiswas conducted in order to rule out malignancy...

BACKGROUND: Garment-related terms have been used to describe the pattern of distribution of giant congenital melanocytic nevi (GCMN). OBJECTIVE: We sought to describe patterns of distribution of GCMN and propose a classification scheme. METHODS: Photographic records of patients with GCMN from the Hospital Clinic of Barcelona were analyzed and a classification based on observed GCMN distribution patterns was created. The classification was independently applied by 8 observers to cases found in the literature...

There are several therapeutic options to treat congenital melanocytic nevi. The motivations for the treatment of small- to medium-sized congenital nevi located on the face or other sensitive areas are frequently cosmetic. The choice of therapy depends on the operator's expertise and on the likelihood of improved cosmesis. We report a case of a medium-sized congenital nevi located on the lower eyelid, successfully treated with a combination of ablative lasers with a single surgical procedure. We achieved an excellent clinical and cosmetic result...

Histopathological interpretation of proliferative nodules occurring in association with congenital melanocytic nevi can be very challenging due to their similarities with congenital malignant melanoma and malignant melanoma arising in association with congenital nevi. We hereby report a diagnostically challenging case of congenital melanocytic nevus with proliferative nodules and ulcerations, which was originally misdiagnosed as congenital malignant melanoma. Subsequent histopathological examination in consultation by one of the authors (R...

BACKGROUND: Although only large congenital melanocytic nevi (CMN) are associated with a significantly high risk for malignant transformation, CMN of all sizes are prone to changes in clinical appearance in early childhood and thus are often biopsied or excised. While CMNs typically exhibit benign behavior, atypical histopathologic findings might be common and may prompt additional unnecessary procedures. OBJECTIVE: To assess the prevalence and associated clinical outcomes of atypical histopathologic features in CMN in children...

BACKGROUND: Congenital melanocytic nevi (CMN) are present at birth. It is well known that the presence of large-sized congenital nevus in early life could predict a major risk of developing melanoma. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the clinical and dermoscopic features of the CMN, to search for and highlight any differences between small-sized, medium-sized, large-sized CMN. METHODS: A nonrandomized observational study was performed. A total of 108 melanocytic nevi were analysed by clinical and dermoscopic examination...

Congenital melanocytic nevi (CMN) are hamartomas present at birth that are composed of nevomelanocytes and thought to originate from faulty migration of precursor melanocytes in the neural crest. Classification is based on projected adult size of the lesion. CMN size correlates positively with risk of melanoma and neurocutaneous melanocytosis. Management requires a patient-centered approach that weighs the risks and benefits of and alternatives to complete removal. All children with large and giant CMN, regardless of surgical status, should be monitored closely and undergo periodic skin examination...

The congenital melanocytic nevus is a pigmented melanocytic lesion that presents at birth or shortly thereafter. It is commonly described on the skin, usually on the trunk and extremities. Only five intraoral cases of congenital melanocytic nevi have been described in the English literature. A nevus spilus (speckled lentiginous nevus) is a clinical variant of congenital melanocytic nevus. The authors present the case of a 19-year-old male with an intraoral nevus spilus. The anterior mandibular gingiva exhibited multiple speckled, pigmented papules and macules on a thickened, hyperplastic macular background...

Nevi and melanocytic proliferations are known to appear in multiple extracutaneous sites, including lymph nodes and meninges. We report a case of an anterior mediastinal mass in a patient with a giant congenital nevus and neurofibromatosis type I. Histologically, the tumor was found to be a malignant melanoma in the thymus arising in association with a nevus that involved most of the thymic tissue. There was no sign of cutaneous melanoma on skin examination. We suggest that the tumor originated from the benign nevus in the thymus, a rare extracutaneous location for nevi and malignant melanoma...

Solitary pigmented melanocytic intraoral lesions of the oral cavity are rare. Oral nevus is a congenital or acquired benign neoplasm. Oral compound nevus constitutes 5.9%-16.5% of all oral melanocytic nevi. The oral compound nevus is commonly seen on hard palate and buccal mucosa and rarely on other intraoral sites. The objective of this article is to present a rare case report of oral compound nevus in the retromolar pad region along with a review of literature. A 22 year old female reported with a solitary black pigmented papule at retromolar pad region which was surgically removed and microscopic investigation confirmed the diagnosis of oral compound nevus...

BACKGROUND: There is limited data about the relationship between psoriasis and melanocytic lesions and melanoma. Immunologic pathways which were implicated in psoriasis induce a reduction in the number of melanocytic nevi. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To investigate the number of melanocytic nevi in psoriatic patients compared with controls and its relationship with disease severity and type of treatment. METHODS: We performed a prospective study in 100 psoriatic patients and 100 controls...

Tissue expansion is a well-established surgical method that has been creatively applied to the management of many congenital and acquired pediatric conditions, including the removal of giant congenital melanocytic nevi and the separation of conjoined twins. Careful preoperative planning and patient follow-up are required to achieve the proper results and minimize complications. Special considerations for pediatric patients are present during each step of the process, from patient selection to postoperative care...

Pre-expanded perforator flaps have several advantages over their traditional counterparts owing to the thin, more pliable nature, larger size, and minimum morbidity of the donor site. Recently, plastic surgeons have begun to use pre-expanded perforator flaps to reconstruct defects of almost the entire body, including the cervicofacial region, axilla, trunk, and extremities resulting from scar, congenital melanocytic nevi, hemangiomas, and neurofibromas. Such a versatile flap is especially appropriate for face and neck resurfacing, which requires more optimal functional and cosmetic outcomes...
