Compound nevus with congenital features and balloon cell changes--an immunohistochemical study

Compound nevus with congenital features and balloon cell changes--an immunohistochemical study

Annals of Diagnostic Pathology 12(5): 362-364

Balloon cell nevi and balloon cell changes in nevi have rarely been reported in the literature. We describe a compound nevus showing focal balloon cell changes in a 20-year-old man. The melanocytic nature of the balloon cells is confirmed by an immunohistochemical study. The findings are compared with those in balloon cell melanomas.
