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.
