Forearm lesion

A 59-year-old woman consulted for this pigmented lesion on her right forearm.

Dermoscopy revealed:
  • irregular pigmentation
  • atypical reticular pattern
  • irregular dots / globules
  • brown dots
  • regressive homogeneous area
in favor of a melanoma.

This lesion was excised and pathology revealed a superficial spreading melanoma with a Breslow index at 0,47mm
