Dysplastic nevus

A 34-year-old woman presented a Clark nevus (synonyms: atypical nevus or dysplastic nevus) on her back.

Dermoscopy revealed an asymmetric reticular-globular pattern.

Central globular pattern (circle) and reticular pattern (rectangle) are well seen on this picture.
The reticular-globular pattern is the most frequent of the different patterns observed in Clark Nevi.
