Scalp lesion

A 72-year-old man consulted for a rapidly growing black nodule on his scalp. (the scar is due to an operation 3 years before for a Bowen's disease).

Dermoscopy revealed a dark blotch. At the border, a blue white veil is present.

This lesion was excised and pathology revealed a nodular melanoma (Breslow index 2 mm)
