Scapular pigmented lesion

Due to an unfortunate accident, I am on a sick leave for a couple of months.
I am pleased to welcome Dr Eric Pierard'cases. Dr Pierard, dermatologist at private practice in Dunkerque, France has an important activity in dermato-oncology and is an expert in dermoscopy.

A 16-year-old man consulted for a left scapular pigmented lesion.

Dermoscopy revealed:
  • an atypical reticular pattern
  • regular streaks
  • blue hint
This lesion was excised and pathology revealed a Reed nevus.
