Abstract

A case with a pigmented skin lesion that was diagnosed as a blue naevus on clinical and dermoscopic grounds and histopathologically confirmed as a dermatofibroma is presented. By means of this case, we define dermatofibroma as a new exception for 'homogeneous blue pigmentation' on dermoscopy.
