  • Approach of Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1 (MEN1) Syndrome-Related Skin Tumors. [Review]
    Diagnostics (Basel). 2022 Nov 12; 12(11)Băicoianu-Nițescu LC, Gheorghe AM, … Sandru F
  • Non-endocrine findings in patients with MEN1 (multiple endocrine neoplasia) syndrome also include skin lesions, especially tumor-type lesions. This is a narrative review of the English-language medical literature including original studies concerning MEN1 and dermatological issues (apart from dermatologic features of each endocrine tumor/neuroendocrine neoplasia), identified through a PubMed-base…
  • A Rare Case of Klippel-Trénaunay Syndrome. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2022 Oct; 14(10):e30128.Arasu A, Khalil-Khan A, … Sathiamoorthy R
  • The Klippel-Trénaunay syndrome (KTS) is a rare form of a birth disorder that includes capillary malformation, hypertrophy of bones and soft tissues, and tortuous varicosities, as well as hypertrophy of the capillaries resulting in hemangiomas and port wine discoloration. KTS is also known as angio-osteohypertrophy syndrome and dysplastic angiopathy. In this case report, we describe the case of a …
  • StatPearls: Dysplastic Nevi [BOOK]
    StatPearls. StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL)BaigrieDanaDCampbell University School of MedicineTannerLaura S.LSBOOK
  • A dysplastic nevus is also referred to as an atypical or Clark’s nevus and has been the topic of much debate in the fields of dermatology and dermatopathology. It is an acquired mole demonstrating a unique clinical and histopathologic appearance that sets it apart from the common nevus. These moles appear atypical clinically, often with a “fried-egg” appearance, and are commonly biopsied by provi…
  • Reflectance confocal microscopy in paediatric patients: Applications and limits. [Journal Article]
    Exp Dermatol. 2022 Oct 20 [Online ahead of print]Scharf C, Di Brizzi EV, … Moscarella E
  • Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is a non-invasive diagnostic tool extensively studied for adult patients. In this retrospective case series conducted at the Dermatology Unit of the University of Campania, Naples, Italy, all patients under 19 years old who were submitted to RCM from January 2011 to December 2021 where evaluated. The aim of the study was to review the most usual indications a…
  • Dysplastic nevus part II: Dysplastic nevi: Molecular/genetic profiles and management. [Review]
    J Am Acad Dermatol. 2023 Jan; 88(1):13-20.Spaccarelli N, Drozdowski R, … Grant-Kels JM
  • Dermatologists frequently see patients with clinically atypical nevi and dermatopathologists interpret histologically dysplastic nevi on a near-daily basis, but there is great variability in the definition and management of such lesions. This part of the CME review focuses on information published since the previous comprehensive review (2012), with emphasis on molecular and genetic attributes of…
  • Dysplastic nevus part I: Historical perspective, classification, and epidemiology. [Review]
    J Am Acad Dermatol. 2023 Jan; 88(1):1-10.Drozdowski R, Spaccarelli N, … Grant-Kels JM
  • Since the late 1970s, the diagnosis and management of dysplastic nevi have been areas fraught with controversy in the fields of dermatology and dermatopathology. Diagnostic uncertainty and lack of standardized nomenclature continue to propagate confusion among clinicians, dermatopathologists, and patients. In part I of this CME review article, we summarize the historical context that gave rise to…
  • StatPearls: Atypical Mole [BOOK]
    StatPearls. StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL)WensleyKatherine E.KEOxford University Hospitals NHSZitoPatrick M.PMUniversity of Miami; Miller School of MedicineBOOK
  • Atypical moles, or dysplastic nevi, are acquired melanocytic neoplasms with disordered architecture and atypia of melanocytes. Multiple synonyms for atypical moles; they are also known as Clark nevi, B-K moles, or dysplastic nevi, although strictly speaking, the term dysplastic nevus refers only to a specific microscopic appearance, of which, only a minority of atypical moles fulfill the criteria…
  • Recognizing Histopathological Simulators of Melanoma to Avoid Misdiagnosis. [Review]
    Cureus. 2022 Jun; 14(6):e26127.Waqar S, George S, … Mohammed L
  • Melanocytic lesions have a wide morphological spectrum, ranging from benign nevi to malignant melanoma. In contrast to a diagnosis of a benign nevus, a diagnosis of melanoma could mean intensive treatment, lifetime monitoring, and a worse prognosis. Therefore, melanocytic tumors are notoriously challenging and associated with a high risk of litigation in surgical pathology. After describing the b…
  • Dysplastic melanocytic nevus: Are molecular findings the key to the diagnosis? [Review]
    Ann Diagn Pathol. 2022 Oct; 60:152006.Xavier-Junior JCC, Ocanha-Xavier JP
  • The primary differential diagnosis of melanoma is dysplastic nevus. Until now, the final diagnosis is based on histological findings. With modern techniques, pathologists receive very early melanocytic lesions, which do not fit all malignant criteria. In those cases, even the concurrence between specialists and intraobserver agreement is not good. A molecular test could be developed to improve th…
  • The Spectrum of Spitz Melanocytic Lesions: From Morphologic Diagnosis to Molecular Classification. [Review]
    Front Oncol. 2022; 12:889223.Cheng TW, Ahern MC, Giubellino A
  • Spitz tumors represent a distinct subtype of melanocytic lesions with characteristic histopathologic features, some of which are overlapping with melanoma. More common in the pediatric and younger population, they can be clinically suspected by recognizing specific patterns on dermatoscopic examination, and several subtypes have been described. We now classify these lesions into benign Spitz nevi…
  • Genetic and methylation profiles distinguish benign, malignant and spitzoid melanocytic tumors. [Journal Article]
    Int J Cancer. 2022 11 01; 151(9):1542-1554.Zaremba A, Jansen P, … Griewank K
  • Accurate classification of melanocytic tumors is important for prognostic evaluation, treatment and follow-up protocols of patients. The majority of melanocytic proliferations can be classified solely based on clinical and pathological criteria, however in select cases a definitive diagnostic assessment remains challenging and additional diagnostic biomarkers would be advantageous. We analyzed me…

  • Rosette-like formations in melanocytic neoplasms: A case report and literature review. [Case Reports]
    J Cutan Pathol. 2022 Sep; 49(9):818-823.Jaeger ZJ, Dehner C, Dehner LP
  • Homer-Wright-like rosettes are a common finding in neural tumors but seldom seen in melanocytic nevi and melanoma. We report a case of a 23-year-old male with a compound melanocytic nevus with such rosette-like structures and summarize the current literature on this histopathological feature in melanocytic neoplasms. A symmetric, well-circumscribed, compound nevus consisting of aggregations of ep…
  • Conceptual Evolution and Current Approach to Spitz Tumors. [Journal Article]
    Dermatopathology (Basel). 2022 Apr 26; 9(2):136-142.Urso C, De Giorgi V, Massi D
  • Over the past several decades, the study of Spitz neoplasms has flourished, with expanded conceptualization and refined terminology, providing a framework for the assessment and classification of Spitz nevi, atypical Spitz Tumors, and Spitz melanoma. Cancer genomics have generated concepts such as driver and passenger genes and clonal evolution, which can be applied to Spitz tumors. Herein, we pr…
