Acral melanocytic nevus with a globular pattern

Acquired or congenital benign melanocytic lesions on the palms and soles (volar skin) are usually called acral nevi.
Acral melanocytic nevi typically feature the following aspects: parallel furrow pattern, lattice-like pattern and fibrillar pattern.

A 25-year-old man consulted for a congenital melanocytic nevus located on the right plantar arch.

Dermoscopy featured a globular pattern without signs of parallel pattern.
