Case 19 Male, 33 years. Skin lesion of lower legShow diagnosis & comments
Spitz naevus. Ascent; slight dermal myxoid change
Stromal changes within a Spitz naevus include oedema (usually in epithelioid Spitz naevi of young children), fibrosis (classically present in desmoplastic Spitz naevus) and, occasionally, as in this instance, slight myxoid change. Pronounced myxoid change, which may for instance be encountered in some cellular blue naevi, is not a feature of Spitz naevi.
