Previous studies have shown that congenital as well as acquired melanocytic naevi indicate an increased risk for developing melanoma in individual patients. Most studies stress the importance of melanocytic naevi as melanoma markers, while in some studies they are considered to be direct melanoma precursors. The latter opinion is favoured by the common co… (More)
