Abstract

We reviewed the clinical and histopathologic findings in 25 Spitz's nevus who were evaluated at our institution from 1980-1988. 18 cases in patients aged 20 years or less and 7 cases in adults. 14 are female and 11 are male. Represent the 3.88% of melanocytic nevi etude in the same time. Eosinophilic globules were find in 64% of the cases. We include a pigmented spindle cell nevi (non-Spitz), we thinks is a variant of Spitz's nevus.
