Distinct phenotypic changes between the superficial and deep component of giant congenital melanocytic naevi: a rationale for curettage.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Giant congenital melanocytic naevi (GCMN) convey a 14-fold increased melanoma risk. In contrast, medium congenital melanocytic naevi (MCMN) are rarely associated with malignant transformation.
