The lack of consensus among clinicians and pathologists due to the mixture of clinical and histopathological features used to define the various melanocytic naevi underscores the need of a better classification system for these benign lesions. We describe a dermoscopic classification system for melanocytic naevi that is directed to clinicians dealing with the early diagnosis of melanoma, as well to pathologists, in order to promote better communication between these different specialists.
