(Melanocytic nevi)

Nevi are flesh-colored to brown maculae, papules or nodules from melanocyte or Nävuszell nests. Their main significance (besides cosmetic) is its similarity to melanoma. Pigmented lesions of the features are evaluated for that might indicate atypical nevi or melanoma (new or changing appearance, irregular borders, multiple colors within a lesion, bleeding, ulceration or itching).

Almost everyone has some nevi, which are usually developed during childhood or adolescence. There are different types of nevi (see Table: Classification of nevi). Over the youth even more nevi occur frequently, and the already existing may enlarge or darker. Nevus cells can be replaced by fat or connective tissue eventually. Nevi typically change their consistency; they are less pigmented soft and spongy or solid, and over the decades.
