Melanocytic Nevi – Blue Nevus of Jadassohn-Tiche
Blue Nevus of Jadassohn-Tiche (also called Common Blue Nevus) is a very common type of Blue Nevus which I encounter frequently in both my The Woodlands dermatology and Conroe dermatology offices. Common Blue Nevi usually occur at a very early age and appear as a blue/grey/black macule or papule and may be mistaken for “pencil lead” in the the skin. Common Blue Nevi grow very slowly and rarely become larger than 1 cm. The most common locations for a Common Blue Nevus are the dorsum of the hands and feet and the face. Treatment of a Common Blue Nevus is not necessary as they are benign but if removal is desired excision can be performed.
