The dysplastic nevus. An Ariadne's thread through a conceptual labyrinth


The dysplastic nevus. An Ariadne's thread through a conceptual labyrinth



Der Pathologe 23(2): 128-134



ISSN/ISBN: 0172-8113

PMID: 12001528

DOI: 10.1007/s00292-001-0518-9

The concept of the dysplastic nevus is flawed by inconsistencies regarding the clinical presentation, histological features and biological considerations. With regard to basic mechanisms of malignancy, dysplastic nevi exhibit neither increased proliferation indices nor elevated telomerase activity. These traits denote a benign lesion that is highly prevalent among Caucasians. In rare cases, the distinction from malignant melanoma may pose problems.
