Oral Blue Nevus: Case Report

Authors : Angelo Itro, Silvia Tortorici and Paolo Difalco

Abstract: Aim of this research is the description of a case of palatal blue nevus and the diagnostic and the rapeutic strategies to adopt when this oral lesion occurs. Nevi are benign proliferations of nevus cells either in the epithelium or in the subepithelial stroma. Blue nevus of the oral mucosa is a rare lesion. The oral blue nevi are asymptomatic and have no malignant potential. More importantly blue nevus had to be differentiated from malignant melanoma. Because is difficult to distinguish oral melanocytic nevi from melanoma we believe that any oral lesion in question should be excised and sent for histopathologic evaluation.
