Agminate Spitz naevi arising on hyperpigmented patches.

Author information

  • 1University Department of Dermatology, Royal Infirmary, Edinburgh, UK.


In 1948 Dr Sophie Spitz described criteria that distinguished juvenile melanoma from malignant melanoma. Since then the cases of eruptive Spitz naevi have been reported arising on normal skin, on lightly pigmented patches and on hypopigmented patches. There are only 12 reports of Spitz naevi arising on hyperpigmented patches: we describe here three further cases, all on the arms of children, seen in our department in a single year.
