Abstract The macroscopic sampling of melanocytic skin lesions may represent an underestimated source of diagnostic problems. 1 In this context, the article by Signoretti et al. 5 on melanocytic nevi of palms and soles (MNPS) is of particular interest. Their suggestion of dissecting MNPS along a plane perpendicular to the skin markings is strongly supported by recently refined diagnostic criteria using dermoscopy (dermatoscopy, epiluminescence microscopy) for the in vivo evaluation of melanocytic skin lesions.
