Spitz Nevus of the Lid (Benign Juvenile Melanoma, Spindle-Epitheloid-Cell Nevus), Histology
Spindle cells that are very similar to those in a melanocytic nevus and react positively to S100 and HMB-45 antibodies indicating melanocytic origin. Differential diagnosis of malignant melanoma can be very difficult.
