…n dense infiltrates, on neoplastic cells, keratocytes in the case of lichen planus-like keratosis and melanocytes in that of melanoma. A melanoma on sun-damaged skin of a face rarely undergoes regression, whereas a melanoma on a trunk or other…

Precanceroses?

…ally, some examples of so-called lentigo maligna, once having extended into the reticular dermis, eventuate in metastases of melanoma. In brief, lentigo maligna is not a “precancerosis,” but a melanoma that is confined to the epidermis…

Blue Nevus?

…sm is no more a malignant blue nevus than a so-called malignant Spitz nevus really is that. A melanocytic nevus is benign. A melanoma may develop in a preexisting melanocytic nevus, but the nevus itself is not malignant. Melanomas arise episodically…
