Author(s): Geo Danny. C*, K. V. Udhayini, Sane Roja Renuka, and Sukanya. G


A 34-year-old female presented with asymptomatic hyperpigmented speckled flat lesions over left shoulder since birth showing follicular prominence. Histopathological examination revealed irregular acanthosis with increased basal layer pigmentation and hyalinised dermis with scattered melanosomes showing lentiginous melanocytic proliferation. With these findings, a diagnosis of speckled lentignous nevus is made. Nevus spilus also known as speckled lentiginous nevus is a patch with superimposed speckles that develop over time, with a small risk of cutaneous melanoma over time. We hereby report a case of nevus spilus which is rare in occurrence.
