Cutaneous Bone Formation Associated With Melanocytic Nevus.

Cutaneous bone formation is an uncommon lesion of the skin. It may be primary or secondary. Secondary lesions are mostly associated with melanocytic nevi. Although many different theories have been pr...

Observational Study Examining the Diagnostic Practice of Ki67 Staining for Melanocytic Lesions.

Dermatopathologists routinely use Ki67 immunostaining to assess atypical melanocytic lesions with a dermal component to determine whether an ambiguous tumor is melanoma. However, there is no universal...

The role of MET in melanoma and melanocytic lesions.

Melanoma is the leading cause of death due to cutaneous malignancy and its incidence is on the rise. Several signaling pathways have been recognized to have an etiopathogenetic role in precursor melan...

Clinical and Dermoscopic Evaluation of Melanocytic Lesions in Patients with Chronic Graft Versus Host Disease.

Patients treated with haematopoietic stem cell transplantation are at increased risk of cutaneous malignant neoplasms. There are no reports on the characteristics of melanocytic lesions in patients wi...

Dermoscopic patterns of acral melanocytic lesions in skin of color.

Acral lentiginous melanoma (ALM) is a rare but aggressive subtype of melanoma often associated with poor prognosis. Although overall incidence is rare, ALM accounts for a larger proportion of melanoma...

Collecting Tissue Samples From Patients With Melanocytic Nevi or Pigmented Lesions

RATIONALE: Collecting and storing tissue samples from patients with melanocytic nevi or pigmented lesions to study in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about the development of me...

Immunohistochemical Expression Patterns of microRNA Processing Enzyme Dicer in Cutaneous Malignant Melanoma, Benign and Dysplastic Melanocytic Naevi

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are very small endogenous RNA molecules about 22-25 nucleotides in length, capable of post-transcriptional gene regulation. miRNAs bind to their target messenger RNAs (m...

Genetic Basis of Melanocytic Nevi

The objective of this protocol is to further elucidate the genetic mutations that drive melanocytic nevi (benign melanocytic neoplasms, moles). This will be performed by whole genome, whol...

Melanoma Detection by Oblique-Incidence Optical Spectroscopy

Primary Objectives: - To establish a statistically significant database: With Spectroscopic Oblique-Incidence Reflectometry (OIR) experimental system, we will obtain OIR spatio-sp...

The Role of Dermoscopy in the Classification of Melanocytic Nevi

This project is a multicenter study in which we will investigate a dual concept of nevogenesis that have been raised recently by our group. Study location is the Department of Dermatology ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Clinically atypical nevi (usually exceeding 5 mm in diameter and having variable pigmentation and ill defined borders) with an increased risk for development of non-familial cutaneous malignant melanoma. Biopsies show melanocytic dysplasia. Nevi are clinically and histologically identical to the precursor lesions for melanoma in the B-K mole syndrome. (Stedman, 25th ed)

Skin lesions due to abnormal infiltration of MAST CELLS. Cutaneous mastocytosis is confined to the skin without the involvement of other tissues or organs, and is mostly found in children. The three major variants are: URTICARIA PIGMENTOSA; diffuse cutaneous mastocytosis; and SOLITARY MASTOCYTOMA OF SKIN.

A chronic form of cutaneous lupus erythematosus (LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS, CUTANEOUS) in which the skin lesions mimic those of the systemic form but in which systemic signs are rare. It is characterized by the presence of discoid skin plaques showing varying degrees of edema, erythema, scaliness, follicular plugging, and skin atrophy. Lesions are surrounded by an elevated erythematous border. The condition typically involves the face and scalp, but widespread dissemination may occur.

A form of LEISHMANIASIS, CUTANEOUS caused by Leishmania aethiopica in Ethiopia and Kenya, L. pifanoi in Venezuela, L. braziliensis in South America, and L. mexicana in Central America. This disease is characterized by massive dissemination of skin lesions without visceral involvement.

A disease characterized by the chronic, progressive spread of lesions from New World cutaneous leishmaniasis caused by species of the L. braziliensis complex to the nasal, pharyngeal, and buccal mucosa some time after the appearance of the initial cutaneous lesion. Nasal obstruction and epistaxis are frequent presenting symptoms.
