Formatted abstract
The lesions shown are from the back of a 29-year old
white man, the back of a 32-year old white man, and the back of a
37-year-old white man. The insets (upper lefthand
corner) in each figure demonstrate the normal photographic
appearance while the larger image demonstrates
the dermoscopic appearance. These lesions are
clinically worrisome but dermoscopically exhibit a special
type of prominent (black to dark brown), broken-up
network, which allows the diagnosis of ink spot lentigo
with confidence. The underlying process creating ink spot
lentigines is not known but it may be due to a defect that
drives the copious production of eumelanin.
