Spitz nevi (SN) are benign melanocytic lesions typical of childhood/adolescence that can mimic melanoma on a clinical, dermoscopic, and histopathologic level. Moreover, SN are often characterized by rapid growth and worrisome changes. Thus, their diagnosis and management may be challenging. The knowledge on prognosis and natural history of SN improved substantially in the last few years thanks to dermoscopy and a better understanding of clinic-pathologic correlations.

Abstract

Spitz nevi (SN) are benign melanocytic lesions typical of childhood/adolescence that can mimic melanoma on a clinical, dermoscopic, and histopathologic level. Moreover, SN are often characterized by rapid growth and worrisome changes. Thus, their diagnosis and management may be challenging. The knowledge on prognosis and natural history of SN improved substantially in the last few years thanks to dermoscopy and a better understanding of clinic-pathologic correlations.
