Abstract

The dysplastic nevus, both the sporadic and familial type, has a significant association with melanoma of the skin. The congenital nevus, which ranges in size from less than 1 cm to a giant hairy nevus, are treated primarily for aesthetic reasons and, in the giant variety, are also treated as a prophylaxis against the possibility of malignant change.
