Abstract

This month we continue a three-part article on benign skin ‘lumps and bumps’ that may be encountered in general practice. Part 2 focuses on melanocytic lesions, including some variants of melanocytic naevi.

Article Extract

This is the second in a series of three articles of benign skin lesions. Part 2 focuses on a range of melanocytic lesions, including some variants of melanocytic naevi. Common forms of melanocytic naevi (junctional, compound and intradermal melanocytic naevi) are not covered in this series, as these are described to some extent in my earlier article, entitled ‘Checking pigmented skin lesions’, which was published in 2007 in Medicine Today.
