BACKGROUND Although most mucosal pigmented macules are benign, it can be clinically challenging to rule out an early melanoma. Reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) is a noninvasive imaging technique useful in discriminating between benign and malignant skin lesions. OBJECTIVES To describe the confocal aspects of benign and malignant mucosal pigmented macules with histopathological correlations. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the confocal images of 56 labial or genital pigmented… CONTINUE READING
