Pigment Cell & Melanoma Research REFERENCES; Goto K, Pissaloux D et. al.

May 9th, 2020 - The genetic anomalies associated with the agminated variant of Spitz nevus have so far been limited to HRAS G13R mutations, especially when arising within a nevus spilus. A previous report exposed the case of a man with a giant pigmented macule in...

The American Journal of Dermatopathology; Donati M, Kastnerova L et. al.

Jul 30th, 2019 - Spitz tumors represent a heterogeneous group of melanocytic neoplasms with a spectrum of biological behavior ranging from benign (Spitz nevus) to malignant (spitzoid melanoma). Prediction of the behavior of these lesions based on their histologica...

The American Journal of Dermatopathology; Schuler A, Smith M et. al.

Jul 3rd, 2019 - Atypical Spitz tumor (AST) is a melanocytic proliferation that shares histopathologic features of Spitz nevus and spitzoid melanoma. Distinction of AST from spitzoid melanoma is critical because the majority of ASTs will follow an indolent course....
