For example, when no clinical information is provided, and the pathologic process shows benign nevus, the diagnosis might read intradermal melanocytic nevus
(no clinical information provided).

Therefore, NMDAR in melanocytic nevus
may be a potential autoantigen in the pathogenesis of anti-NMDAR encephalitis.
3] The life time risk of malignant transformation in a giant melanocytic nevus
ranges from two to 31 percent with an average of 12% as reported by Kopf et al.
4-8) However, none of these markers can reliably distinguish between a neurotized melanocytic nevus
and a neurofibroma.
Other cutaneous lesions also related to amyloid deposits are linear verrucous epidermal nevus (23), melanocytic nevus
