“…In recent years, several errors (or complications) related to laser treatment of melanocytic lesions have been reported [1,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21]. Although lentigines and café au lait spots are frequently managed with IPL [4], there are few cases of melanocytic nevi treated with this technique in the literature, mainly because the use of laser therapy and IPL in the treatment of pigmented melanocytic lesions is a controversial issue.…”

“…Moreover, several cases wherein melanoma was diagnosed after laser treatment of presumed benign nevi have been recently described [11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21]. It is still unclear whether the lesions were primary malignant melanomas treated with laser or if a malignant melanoma was induced by the laser treatment.…”

“…Treatment of congenital nevi is controversial because of the potential for malignant transformation. Laser treatment may mask or delay a correct diagnosis of melanoma or other malignant pigmented lesions 33 . Any suspicious, atypical‐looking lesion should be biopsied before beginning treatment.…”

“…The vast majority of pigmented lesions are treated using a laser without negative sequelae, although there are reports of melanoma diagnosis after ablative and pigment‐targeting lasers 5,6 . There is also speculation of the influence of lasers on melanoma progression and its role in delayed diagnosis and poor outcome 7,8 .…”
