Atypical Nevi

(Dysplastic nevi, atypical nevi)

Atypical moles are benign melanocytic nevi with irregular, poorly demarcated border, changing color, usually brown and maroon, as well as macular and papular shares. Patients with atypical moles are at increased risk for melanoma. The management consists of careful clinical monitoring as well as highly atypical or changing lesions from an excisional biopsy. Patients should reduce sun exposure and regularly perform self-examinations to new nevi or changes in existing nevi.

Atypical moles (AM) are sysplastische nevi and differ clinically and histologically (irregular architecture and melanocytic atypia). Most melanomas arise de novo. Among the risk factors for melanoma include increased number of AM and the increased exposure to UV radiation and sunlight. Some patients have few dysplastic nevi, many others.

The predisposition for dysplastic nevi is probably inherited (autosomal dominant), but they also occur sporadically with no family history. The hereditary dysplastic nevus cell nevus syndrome refers to the presence of multiple dysplastic nevi and melanoma in ? two first-degree relatives. In these patients, the melanoma risk significantly (25 times) is increased. Atypical nevus Photo courtesy of Carl Washington, MD, Emory Univ.
