Abstract

Spitz nevi, benign melanocytic tumors, have some histologic resemblance to malignant malinoma. They usually appear as asymptomatic, solitary, reddish to pinkish, hairless, dome-shaped, round to oval, smooth-surfaced papules or nodules, measuring less than 1.0 cm in diameter. Histologically, these lesions display striking nests of large spindle cells and epithelioid cells, usualy extending from the epidermis to the reticular dermis. Here in, we report a case of Spitz nevus on the helix of the right ear of a 23-year-old man which was treated with Er:YAG laser.
