What's already known about this topic?
- Naevoid melanoma is a rare variant of melanoma, and can be difficult to detect as its clinical and histopathological morphology can simulate a naevus.
What does this study add?
- This study provides new insights into the clinical and dermoscopic morphology of naevoid melanoma, facilitating its clinical recognition.
