Halo nevus

A 25-year-old man consulted for 2 cases of depigmentation around nevi on his back.

Case 1: the nevus became lighter and there was a rim of depigmentation

Case 1: dermoscopy revealed a globular pattern with globules barely visible

Case 2: the globules disappeared and there was only a depigmentation

Keywords: halo nevus, Sutton nevus, leukoderma acquisitum centrifugum, depigmentation, globular pattern.
