Abstract: A Spitz nevus is a melanocytic neoplasm of epithelioid and/or spindle cells that usually appears in childhood. These lesions are by nature benign, but their features can sometimes make them difficult to distinguish from melanomas. Spitzoid melanocytic lesions have been grouped into 3 types in recent decades: Spitz nevi, atypical Spitz tumors, and spitzoid melanomas. Atypical Spitz tumors are spitzoid melanocytic proliferations that have atypical histopathologic features that are insufficient to support a diagnosis of melanoma. The malignant potential of these lesions is at present uncertain. This review examines the clinical, dermoscopic, and histopathologic features of this group of lesions.
