Abstract

The combined nevus is a clinical simulator of melanoma, and clinical examination alone can be inadequate to diagnose this melanocytic pigmented skin lesion. Dermoscopy is a useful tool to differentiate the features related to each type of nevus. We report two cases of combined nevi dermoscopically characterized by a diffuse blue-whitish pigmentation similar to the blue-whitish veil, suggesting the diagnosis of melanoma.
