All of the nevi, including the neurotized areas, stained strongly and diffusely for S100, whereas all the neurofibromas showed a distinctive, sharp, wavy pattern of S100 staining. Neurofilament protein showed scattered staining of both melanocytic nevi and neurofibromas Congenital or acquired benign melanocytic proliferation Dermoscopy: nevus type varies by skin type in whites (Arch Dermatol 2007;143:351) ; Color: due to Tyndall effect (scattering of light as it hits melanin granules, Wikipedia); melanin in stratum corneum appears black, melanin in reticular dermis appears slate-gray or blue ; Nevi may regress due to lymphocytic infiltration (see halo nevus
Neurotized nevi were diagnosed upon recognition of scattered nests of type A or B nevus cells, surrounded by basement membrane, present in the papillary dermis of lesions otherwise indistinguishable from neurofibromas. The congenital nevi were all large melanocytic nevi known to be present at birth When the nevus is examined by a pathologist under the microscope, the melanocytes appear like spindle cells resembling a nerve; and hence, it is called a Neurotized Nevus Normally, Neurotized Nevi are present in all individuals including children and adults.

Since histological analysis is the gold standard for melanoma diagnose, to understand possible findings in nevi is the first step to avoid diagnostic errors. The aim of this paper is to describe several histological features that can be found in nevi and may be misunderstood or overlooked. Histological findings were organized into two groups: 1- adaptive findings (neurotization, sebaceous. Neurotized congenital melanocytic nevus and pigmented neurofibroma (PNF) are close mimics and pose a clinicopathological challenge. We present a case of pigmented hypertrichotic plaque over lumbosacral region and discuss the differential diagnosis and its clinical, histopathological and immunohistochemistry features which may aid in differentiation Neurotized Nevus Cells Nevus cells in the deepest portion of the lamina propria can appear spindled, similar to fibroblasts or Schwann cells. This is a feature of more mature nevi. The nevus cells lack melanin and exhibit a neurotized appearance where the neval cells are palisaded and surrounded by wavy or mature collagen We report a case of nevus spilus with neurotized nevus studied by immunohistochemical methods using S-100, leu-6, glial fibrillary acid protein (GFAP), and myelin basic protein (MBP). Histologic findings of the speckled lesion showed irregular rete ridge elongation, increased epidermal melanocyte David Weedon AO MD FRCPA FCAP(HON), in Weedon's Skin Pathology (Third Edition), 2010. Histopathology. The junctional nevus is composed of discrete nests of melanocytes/nevus cells at the dermoepidermal junction, usually located on the rete ridges, which often show some accentuation. The cells are oval to cuboidal in shape, with clear cytoplasm containing a variable amount of melanin pigment
Object moved to here Histologic findings of the speckled lesion showed irregular rete ridge elongation, increased epidermal melanocytes and melanin in the epidermis, and scattered nevus cell nests in the upper dermis, but showed neurotized nevus in the deep dermis, which has many features of neurofibroma Neurotized nevi have received little attention in the dental literature, and there was no information on NC in oral melanocytic nevi. METHODS: Six cases of oral intramucosal nevi with a significant number of NC (two completely and four partially neurotized nevi) were examined immunohistochemically and ultrastructurally
The term benign melanocytic nevus refers to a heterogeneous group of nonmalignant melanocytic nevi manifesting either as pigmented or nonpigmented cutaneous lesions.. The prototypical benign melanocytic nevus is the common acquired nevus, which typically appears within the first 6 months of life, reaches maximal size and number in young adulthood, then disappears with advancing age Differential expression of the intermediate filament peripherin in cutaneous neural lesions and neurotized melanocytic nevi. V G Prieto Department of Pathology, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina 27710, USA Background: Neurofibromatosis, type 1, is associated with cutaneous melanin pigmentation, but an association with ordinary melanocytic nevi has not been described. Methods: This retrospective case-control study was designed to see if neurofibromas in patients with neurofibromatosis, type 1 (NF-1) differ from sporadic neurofibromas (SN) in their incidence of associated melanocytic nevi and.
nn cells, also derived from the neural crest, express peripherin. Expression of peripherin was evaluated by immunohistochemistry in cutaneous lesions characterized by a prominent Schwann cell component including 26 neurofibromas (NF), 10 schwannomas (SCH), seven granular cell tumors, and five palisaded encapsulated neuromas (PEN); 13 neurotized melanocytic nevi (NMN) also were evaluated. . In malignant melanoma, nestin expression was observed in all T3 and T4 melanomas, in which tumor thickness is more than 2 mm, but only in half of the T2, T1 and Tis tumors, in which tumor thickness is 2 mm or less.

S-100 stained the majority of neoplastic cells in all neurofibromas, neurotized acquired nevi, and neurotized congenital nevi. Neurofibromas showed focal staining for Leu-7, GFAP, and MBP Usually they are histologically distinct from each other; however, neurotized melanocytic nevi and neurofibromas can be clinically and histologically similar. Objective To determine whether Melan-A (MART-1) immunohistochemical stain is sufficient to differentiate neurotized melanocytic nevi from neurofibromas
Introduction. Neurotized congenital melanocytic nevus and pigmented neurofibroma (PNF) are close mimics and pose a clinicopathological challenge. Pigmented neurofibroma is a rare neurofibroma with melanin-laden pigment cells which accounts for less than 1% of neurofibromas. We present a case of pigmented hypertrichotic plaque over lumbosacral region and discuss its differential diagnosis. These neuroid cells are quite distinct with electron microscopy and immunohistochemistry from those seen in a neurofibroma. 302,303 The cells in a neurofibroma show focal staining for Leu 7, glial fibrillary acid protein (GFAP), and myelin basic protein (MBP), antigens not expressed in neurotized melanocytic nevi. 302 Neither cell expresses.
• A neurotized nevus may exhibit nests of cells with wavy, neural-like nuclei and may appear similar histologically to neurofibromas. However, nests composed of typical, cuboidal nevus cells can usually be identified within a neurotized nevus CONTEXT Neurotized melanocytic nevi and neurofibromas are common, benign cutaneous neoplasms. Usually they are histologically distinct from each other; however, neurotized melanocytic nevi and neurofibromas can be clinically and histologically similar. OBJECTIVE To determine whether Melan-A (MART-1) immunohistochemical stain is sufficient to differentiate neurotized melanocytic nevi from. S-100 stained the majority of neoplastic cells in all neurofibromas, neurotized acquired nevi, and neurotized congenital nevi. Neurofibromas showed focal staining for Leu-7, GFAP, and MBP Neurotized and desmoplastic common nevi can be confused with desmoplastic melanoma especially of pure type. The nevi, however, lack atypical junctional changes, dermal mitoses, and scattered clusters of lymphocytes. MELANOMA PATHOLOGY REPORT

The histopathology of the tan background is characterized by elongation of the rete ridges with increased basal layer melanin pigment and in many cases a lentiginous melanocytic hyperplasia, similar to changes seen in lentigines. 2 The darker areas may be junctional nevi, intradermal nevi, compound nevi, neurotized nevi, 3 blue nevi, 4 or Spitz. The histological specimen was sent to Prof. Cristopher Fletcher, Director of Surgical Pathology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, who confirmed the diagnosis. 1 On microscopic examination, the lesion showed two distinct processes, with the typical features of epithelioid cell histiocytoma and neurotized melanocytic nevus (hematoxylin and eosin.
A nevus (plural nevi) is a mole on the skin that can occur on any part of the body. A common mole is benign tumor of melanocytic (pigment-based) cells that occur on the skin. It is also known as acquired melanocytic nevus. Normally, Intradermal Common Moles (or simply Dermal Moles) are present in all individuals including children and adults To the Editor.— The immunohistochemical demonstration factor XIIIa expression in more than 50 of the cells in 10 of 10 neurofibromas, but in 0 of 10 schwannomas, by Gray and coworkers was very interesting. 1 The authors also observed considerable staining for factor XIIIa among the spindleshaped cells in partly neurotized nevi (their Figs 3 and 4) Blue nevus (BN) is a common specimen in routine pathology practice. It was first described by Jadassohn-Tièche in 1906.3 Blue nevus most commonly arises in children and young adults, commonly females, but can occur at any age or as a congenital lesion.4-6 The most common locations are the dorsal aspects of extremities, scalp, and buttocks.7-9 Extracutaneous presentation is rare but has.
