Acral melanocytic nevus

A 6-year-old boy consulted for a congenital acral melanocytic nevus on his 2nd left toe.

This lesion exhibited a combination of 3 patterns, namely a parallel furrow pattern (dots on the furrows), an homogeneous pattern and a reticular pattern.

Parallel furrow pattern (circle) and reticular pattern (rectangle) were the main patterns observed on this benign melanocytic nevus.

Other cases of acral nevi:
