“…Recently, evidence has been provided that MM comprises a family of different tumours that vary biologically in growth activity [24,25,26]. Rapidly growing MMs, whose characteristics and associations were described by Liu et al [24], were more often symmetrical, elevated, amelanotic, symptomatic and with regular borders.…”

“…[3][4][5] The clinical features of NeM are described as dome-shaped or verrucous, variably pigmented lesions arising on the trunk or limbs of adult patients. [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19] While dermoscopy has been proven to improve the recognition of various pigmented and nonpigmented skin tumours, 20,21 including various subtypes of melanoma, [22][23][24][25][26][27] no data exist on the dermoscopic pattern of NeM. The aim of this multicentre study was to describe the dermoscopic features most frequently associated with NeM.…”
