Cells from this proliferation pass into the underlying dermis forming compound nevi. Later junctional melanocytic activity ceases, leaving an intradermal nevus. A minority of nevi, mainly blue nevi, arise from intradermal melanocytes. Histological variants of melanocytic nevi exist and can be the source of difficult… CONTINUE READING
