Genital melanoma in situ. Note slight increase of solitary melanocytes with long dendrites above the dermo-epidermal junction junction, nor nests of melanocytes [2]. A few melanophages, but no melanocytes, are found in the dermis. Reports of melanoma arising in the background of melanosis most likely represented cases of melanoma misdiagnosed from the beginning. Genital nevi can be located on the vulva, the penis, and the perianal region [2, 24, 26, 41, 44]. Clinically, they can simulate melanoma by showing asymmetry and poor circumscription.

Although precise histopathological criteria for distinction of benign from malignant melanocytic proliferations have been established, in some instances a precise diagnosis is not possible, a problem that is reflected by the use of various terms coined during the years, including “melanocytic tumors of uncertain malignant potential (MELTUMP)” or “superficial atypical melanocytic proliferation of uncertain significance (SAMPUS)” among others.
