Abstract

Atypical acquired melanocytic nevi in patients with epidermolysis bullosa (EB) have been referred to as EB nevi and are considered to be a type of recurrent nevus with atypical but distinctive histopathologic findings. Herein, we describe an atypical nevus in a patient with Hailey-Hailey disease with different histopathologic findings from EB nevi because of presumably different pathogenesis. It is important to be aware that the recurrent nevi phenomenon can be seen in acantholytic conditions as well as blistering disorders, given these lesions may clinically resemble melanoma.
