Abstract
We report a case of common blue naevus with polymorphous guttate and linear satellite lesions, thereby mimicking peripherally spreading malignant melanoma. Histopathologic examination showed that the naevus cells are clustered around blood vessels in the primary as well as satellite lesions, suggestive of spreading of the naevus cells along the perivascular space. Such biological behaviour resulting in a clinical manifestation of a malignant melanoma-like lesion is a rarity in common blue naevus, a benign cutaneous disorder that is devoid of a malignant potential, and has not been described before.
