The term “melanocytic nevi” comprises a heterogeneous group of benign melanocytic proliferations with different epidemiologic, clinical, dermoscopic, and histopathologic characteristics. Within this spectrum, it is possible to distinguish two main categories: congenital melanocytic nevi (CMN) and acquired melanocytic nevi (AMN).
