Nevus Spilus (Speckled lentiginous nevus)
We define nevus spilus as a medium-sized, or large, cafè au lait macule speckled with melanocytic nevi. The definition is incorrect and imprecise but it is very entrenched in the common dermatological jargon and it is less cumbersome than others which are nosologically more appropriate. The French literature refers to this entity as “nevus en nevus”.
