EQA Participants - 1 I favour an (almost entirely) junctional Spitz nevus I think dysplastic compound naevus but with some superficial dermal nests with atypical melanocytes. ?enough cytological atypia for SSMM. Need levels + sections of whole lesion severely dysplastic naevus with probable regression less than 1mm in depth
EQA Participants melanoma in situ with regression Severely dysplastic naevus it looks like a regressing Spitz naevus - Kamino bodies, ly infiltrate vascularity and focal fibrosis asymmetrical - irregular architecture. Atypical spitz I think Although only one nest in the dermis it is larger than the epidermal nest and hence favour vertical growth phase melanoma.
EQA Participants Lots of Kamino bodies. Epithelioid melanocytes. Compound. Some atypia but has history of punch biopsy. I think this is a Spitz naevus that has been previously traumatised by the punch biopsy. Difficult case- assymetrical lesion, cytological atypia more than expected for site specific naevi
EQA Participants Some Kamino bodies and spitzoid nests but variation in nuclear atypia and features of dermal regression which is diffuse rather than focal. I think this is a compound DYSPLASTIC NAEVUS but would like to see more levels in view of history and previous biopsy I can't see the punch bx site
EQA Participants Fairly symmetrical lesion with numerous Kamino bodies. Limited dermal component with no mitotic figures. Has rather spizoid look. Unsure whether there is true dysplasia
