Atypical (dysplastic) nevi

A 19-year-old man consulted for multiple atypical (dysplastic nevi or Clark nevi) on her trunk. Three of them were clustered on her back. They featured three different dermoscopic patterns:

1-reticulo-globular pattern with eccentric hyperpigmentation

2 - multicomponent pattern (globular, reticular and homogeneous patterns)

3- reticular pattern with central hypopigmentation
