Reticular patternA lesion with a reticular pattern has typical pigment network throughout the entire lesion.

A lesion with a reticular patternA lesion with a reticular pattern has typical pigment network throughout the entire lesion. has typical pigment networkNetwork with minimal variability in the color, thickness, and spacing of the lines; symmetrically distributed delicate network light brown, thin network lines throughout the entire lesion.

Patchy reticular patternA patchy network pattern is a benign pattern composed of islands of pigment network symettrically distributed throughout the entire lesion.

Peripheral reticular with central hypopigmentationIn this benign pattern we see typical pigment network at the periphery of a lesion with a central light stuctureles area. This is seen very frequently in compound nevi.

In this benign pattern we see typical pigment network at the periphery of a lesion with a central light stuctureles area. This is seen very frequently in compound nevi.

Peripheral reticular with central globulesThis is a benign pattern with peripherl reticulation (pigment network) and regular globules in the center

This is a benign pattern with peripherl reticulation (pigment networkGrid-like pattern consisting of interconnecting pigmented lines surrounding hypopigmented holes.) and regular globules in the center

Teared globules at the periphery

This pattern is typically seen in Spitz neviThis glossary term has not yet been described.

Peripheral streaks (starburst patternThis pattern consists of peripheral globules, pseudopods or streaks (or a combination of them), located around the entire perimeter of the lesion)

This pattern is typically seen in Spitz / Reed nevi

Multicomponent patterns

Two component pattern

This pattern can be seen in a kissing nevus (collision of 2 nevi) or in atypical or malignantThis glossary term has not yet been described. lesions. We recommend either follow up or excision of these lesions.

Multi component pattern

A multi component pattern consists of a combination of reticular, globular and homogenous pattern in the same lesion. If the multi component pattern is symmetric throughout the lesion we recommend follow up or excision. It the multicomponent patternThis glossary term has not yet been described. is assymetric, we recommend excision of the lesion.
