Dermoscopy shows a featureless white area with scattered thin, superficial linear, and arborizing vessels Blue nevi are typically heavily melanized. We report a variant of blue nevus that is minimally pigmented. Of the 1,358 blue nevi seen in our laboratory during the last 6 years, 38 (2.7%) were selected that had scant or absent melanin. We refer to these blue nevi as the amelanotic type to our knowledge, clinical images of a completely amelanotic blue nevus have not been published in the literature. We present clinical and dermoscopic images of an amelanotic sclerotic blue nevus with complete lack of pigment. Awareness of this variant is important for clinicians, as absence of expected pigmentation may result in diagnostic errors
.: 696 They can be pink, red, purple or of normal skin color, and are therefore difficult to diagnose correctly. They can occur anywhere on the body, just as a typical melanoma can..

Blue Nevus. Blue nevus is an acquired melanocytic lesion characterized by a proliferation within the reticular dermis of dendritic and spindled melanocytes, often accompanied by heavy melanin pigmentation (Fig. 49-94 ). The term derives from the characteristic blue color of the lesions observed clinically An amelanotic blue nevus (also known as a hypomelanotic blue nevus) is a cutaneous condition characterized by mild atypia and pleomorphism.: 701; A malignant blue nevus is a cutaneous condition characterized by a sheet-like growth pattern, mitoses, necrosis, and cellular atypia.: 70 The common blue nevus is a flat to slightly elevated, smooth surfaced macule, papule, or plaque that is gray-blue to bluish black in color. Lesions are usually solitary and found on the head and.
The common blue nevus is a flat to slightly elevated, smooth surfaced macule, papule, or plaque that is gray-blue to bluish black in color. Lesions are usually solitary and found on the head and the neck, the sacral region, and the dorsal aspects of the hands and feet. The cellular blue nevus was first described as a variant of melanoma Clinically, a Blue Nevus appears as a very dark blue or black macule or papule. There are multiple types of Blue Nevi: Blue Nevus of Jadassohn-Tiche, Cellular Blue Nevus, Epithelioid Blue Nevus, Amelanotic Blue Nevus, and Malignant Blue Nevus Additionally, patients with the inherited condition dysplastic nevus syndrome are at a high risk of developing melanoma during their lifetime. Fair skin: People who have light-colored, freckled skin and blond or red hair with blue or green eyes are at a greater risk of developing melanoma. This is especially true if your skin tends to burn as.
Recognition of amelanotic cellular blue nevus is important because the lack of expected pigmentation may result in clinical and pathologic diagnostic difficulty. In particular, amelanotic cellular blue nevus must be distinguished from malignant cellular blue nevus and other variants of melanoma Blue nevus is a benign pigmented lesion of dermal melanocytes with a number of histologic and clinical variants, Amelanotic Blue Nevus: A Variant of Blue Nevus, The American Journal of Dermatopathology, 10.1097/00000372-199906000-00003, 21, 3, (225-228), (1999).

(external link The term malignant blue nevus is synonymous with malignant melanoma arising in association with a cellular blue nevus or growing in a histologic pattern similar to that of a cellular blue nevus Cellular blue nevus; Amelanotic blue nevus; Combined blue nevus; Sclerosing (desmoplastic) blue nevus; Epithelioid nevus. What are the clinical features of blue nevus? The common blue nevus is a solitary, bluish, smooth surfaced macule, papule or plaque. They are generally round or oval in shape. The common blue nevus is usually 0.5-1 cm in. Amelanotic/ hypomelanotic melanoma (AHM) represents 2-8% of all melanomas, but its real incidence is difficult to estimate because at the beginning it is often misdiagnosed and/or confused with inflammatory diseases, benign tumors and other malignant tumors (i.e. actinic keratosis, Bowen 's disease, basal cell carcinoma, keratoacanthoma, Merkel cell carcinoma, pyogenic granuloma, haemangioma. A number of variants of blue nevi with corresponding histologic changes have been described, including epithelioid blue nevus (classic description is with the Carney complex, but also is seen without this condition), atypical blue nevus, deep penetrating blue nevus, sclerosing blue nevus, and amelanotic blue nevus.

Mishima, Y.: Electron Microscopy and Enzymic Activity of Cellular Blue Nevus: Amelanotic Blue Nevus and its Malignant Transformation , read before the Annual Meeting of the Japanese Dermatological Association, Sendai, Japan, May 21-23, 196 A number of variants of blue nevi with corresponding histologic changes have been described, including epithelioid blue nevus (classic description is with the Carney complex, but also is seen without this condition), atypical blue nevus, deep penetrating blue nevus, sclerosing blue nevus, and amelanotic blue nevus. [22, 23 In melanomas without significant pigmentation, either amelanotic or hypomelanotic, such as what was seen in a dysplastic nevus and a blue nevus in that study . We conclude that contact non polarized dermoscopy using proper technique, with gel and minimal pressure, gives the best color balance to allow reliable detection of the pink rim sig Background: In recent years, several histopathologic variants of blue nevus have been identified, whose clinical and dermoscopic correlates need further clarification. Methods: A comparative evaluation of histopathologic and dermoscopic features was carried out on 52 melanocytic proliferations belonging to the morphologic spectrum of blue nevus. Results: On dermoscopy, all lesions showed a.

Blue nevus of Jadassohn-Tièche (also known as a Common blue nevus, and Nevus ceruleus) is a cutaneous condition characterized by a steel-blue papule or nodule
The Blue Mountains Eye Study recorded choroidal nevi in 6.5 percent of a prospectively studied population of mostly middle-aged white Australians.1 Choroidal melanomas, on the other hand, are fortunately a rare entity, with an estimated incidence of approximately six per million. Nevertheless, choroidal melanoma is the most common primary. Of these articles, 30 reported on amelanotic melanoma (275 cases), 5,8-36 6 on animal-type or pigmented epithelioid melanocytoma (PEM) (7 cases), 37-42 4 on balloon cell melanoma (5 cases), 43-46 4 on desmoplastic melanoma (66 cases), 34,47-49 1 on follicular melanoma (1 case), 50 4 on nested melanoma (6 cases), 51-54 5 on nevoid melanoma (31.

In some instances, a conjunctival nevus can assume an irregular or diffuse growth pattern. Such an atypical nevus can occupy a large portion of the conjunctiva and lead to diagnostic confusion with PAM, melanoma and, in the case of amelanotic lesions, with lymphoma or lymphangioma ().A relatively common occurrence with conjunctival nevus is secondary inflammation, which may simulate primary. A melanocytic nevus (also known as nevocytic nevus) is a type of lesion that contains nevus cells (a type of melanocyte). Some sources equate the term mole with melanocytic nevus. Other sources reserve the term mole for other purposes. The majority of moles appear during the first two decades of a person's life, with about one in every 100 babies being born with moles Amelanotic cellular blue nevus is a cellular blue nevus. Blue nevi are solitary papules 2 mm to 1 cm in diameter or, less commonly, plaques, with a bluish color. Blue nevi are histologically similar to the Mongolian patch, commonly seen over the sacrum of Asian or African-American children No. 5 CELLULAR AND MALIGNANT BLUE NEVUS - h4erkow et al. FIG. 6. Ultrastructural survey view of MBN in a relatively amelanotic region. The neoplastic cells contain small mitochondria (M), fine filaments (Fi), and small melanosomes (arrows)
They can be gray, brown, blue, or black. Under microscopic examination, clusters of epithelioid nevus cells are seen, with some melanin granules present. 7 Since it is impossible to differentiate clinically among nevi, melanotic macules, and early spreading melanoma, biopsy is essential. MELANOMA. About 1% of all melanomas occur in the oral cavity Amelanotic melanoma (AM) is a rare form of melanoma which lacks visible pigment. Due to the achromic manifestation of this atypical cutaneous malignancy, it has been difficult to establish clinical criteria for diagnosis. Thus, AM often progresses into an invasive disease due to delayed diagnosis. In this report, we describe the case of a 72-year-old Caucasian woman who had been diagnosed with.

Amelanotic melanoma is a type of skin cancer. Unlike most forms of melanoma, a person with amelanotic melanoma will develop a mole or similar growth that does not contain melanin Amelanotic melanoma, Spitz nevus, basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma. Laser ablation, shave excision with electrodesiccation of base. Send for histologic evaluation to rule out melanoma
CONCLUSIONS Challenging areas in diagnosis of blue nevi include recognition of amelanotic, desmoplastic, atypical, and malignant variants of blue nevus. Recent data show that mutations in genes responsible for common nevi or melanomas such as BRAF , NRAS , or c- kit are rare in blue nevi The blue nevus consists of an acquired or congenital blue, blue-gray or blue-black papule, plaque or nodule, histologically composed by dermal dendritic, fibroblast-like cells containing melanin. In certain cases it may be difficult to diagnose especially when it appears as an amelanotic reddish lesion Amelanotic Melanoma. View this YouTube video on Amelanotic melanoma.

The tumor is present on the vaginal wall and large sizes may obstruct the uterine cervix. During pregnancy, an increase in size of the tumor is noted. The tumor can also form into a cyst-like mass. In general, a blue nevus is usually slow-growing and pigmented INTRODUCTION Cellular blue nevus is a variant of the common blue nevus, but was first described as a variant of melanoma. Although these can be similar clinically to the common blue nevus, they tend to be larger, elevated, and have more pronounced celluarity composed of nonpigmented spindle-shaped melanocytes Zembowicz A, Granter SR, McKee PH, Mihm MC.
