Early superficial spreading melanoma

A 37-year-old man consulted for an enlarging pigmented lesion on his abdomen.


Dermoscopy revealed an atypical pattern with an asymmetry, homogeneous area, irregular dots and globules, and irregular branched streaks.


The lesion was excised and pathology revealed a superficial spreading melanoma with a Breslow index non measurable.
