Formatted abstract
Clark’s nevi (atypical melanocytic nevi) are acquired melanocytic lesions that are well known clinically by physicians and especially by dermatologists. Clark’s nevi are named for Wallace H. Clark, Jr., who first drew attention to this particular type of nevus in studies of numerous melanocytic nevi in patients with concomitant melanomas. This melanocytic nevus, originally designated B-K mole, has also been called dysplastic nevus or atypical mole. We prefer to use the nomenclature set forth by Ackerman and Magana-Garcia and designate these acquired melanocytic lesions as Clark’s nevi.
