There is much debate regarding the term common or typical nevus. In our view of melanocytic nevi, you can clinically and dermoscopically differentiate between common/typical and uncommon/atypical or dysplastic nevi. The term common nevus encompasses the flat common nevus, the dermal nevus of the face (Miescher nevus), and the papillomatous dermal nevus of Unna. These two types of nevi are described in Chaps. III.13 and III.19.
