By Skin Cancer Institute |April 19, 2022

How can you recognise and manage atypical naevi? In this short video, Professor Giuseppe Argenziano uses real patient cases to explain how to manage atypical lesions in primary care.

In the video, Prof Argenziano looks at how a patient's clinical appearance and history make a difference to how you might manage the atypical naevi on their skin.

When it comes to atypical skin lesions, the question is are they naevi or are they melanoma? Prof Argenziano explains how to consider the entire scenario to better answer this question and provide an accurate diagnosis for your patients.

He dermoscopically examines ten lesions belonging to the same patient and explains his findings.
