Lentigo maligna melanoma


A 68-year-old man consulted for an enlarging dark pigmented lesion.


Dermoscopy revealed asymmetrical pigmented follicular openings, rhomboidal structures and some homogenous areas.
A biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of lentigo maligna . The lesion was completely excised and pathology revealed a lentigo maligna melanoma in situ.
