Surgical Care

A biopsy should be performed on any changing pigmented lesion. For a solitary lesion, simple excision is usually curative. Rare cases of persistent blue nevi, manifesting as satellite lesions around the original excision site, have been reported. These must be distinguished from malignant blue nevus, and reexcision is recommended.
