Blue nevus

A 24-year-old man presented a dark blue lesion on her right arm. Pathology revealed a blue nevus.
Dermoscopy revealed a blue pigmentation and an area of brown pigmentation and dots.
Blue nevi do not have systematically a blue homogeneous pattern and in some cases dermoscopy reveal islands of depigmentation or areas of brown pigmentation.
