Differential Diagnosis

History: A small dark-red to brownish dome-shaped slightly crusted nodule developed within an irregularly-shaped congenital melanocytic nevus.

It has been excised with a suitable safe margin and sent for histologic examination which revealed a nodular melanoma with malignant melanocytes reaching to mid dermis level.
