Blue white veil

A 72-year-old man consulted for this black tumour on his back.

Dermoscopy revealed a sharply multi-coloured lesion without visible reticular pigment network covered by a central crust.

Most strikingly features were:
  • a blue white veil
  • irregular and thick vessels (see white square)
in favour of a melanoma.
