Spitz nevus

A 23-year-old woman consulted for this pigmented lesion in her back.
Its history was unclear.
Clinically this lesion was an ugly duckling by comparison with other moles she had.

Dermoscopy revealed a reticular pattern, irregular globules especially visible at the periphery and some pseudopods.

Dermoscopic presentation was in favor of a Spitz nevus.
The lesion was excised and pathology confirmed the diagnosis.
