Enlarging nevus

A 13-year-old girl consulted for a scapular enlarging nevus at the end of summer.

In dermoscopy (x20), the lesion was well defined, with a symetric globular pattern.

The main sign was a symetric peripheral rim of globules, suggestive of a benign enlarging nevus.

The management consisted in a yearly follow-up.
