Jean L. Bolognia, MD, Professor of Dermatology, Vice Chair of Clinical Affairs, and Director of the Pigmented Lesion Clinic at Yale University School of Medicine, delivered the 2013 Howard Fox Memorial Lecture on April 26, 2013 at NYAM. The subject of her lecture, which was sponsored by the NYAM Section on Dermatology, was Signature Nevi. Patients who have an increased number of moles tend to be consistent in the type of mole they produce, and the repetitive type for a given patient is that patient’s signature nevus. Patients with numerous melanocytic nevi, i.e., those who are moley, often produce a particular type of nevus, a so-called signature nevus.
