Emerging on a forearm

A 73-year-old man consulted for a pigmented lesion on his right forearm. This lesion was not symmetrical and been recently discovered by patient.

Dermoscopy revealed:
  • an asymmetrical pigmentation
  • a disorganised and atypical reticular network
  • an homogeneous area
This lesion was excised and pathology revealed a superficial spreading melanoma in situ.
