Diagnostic Considerations

In its earliest stage, speckled lentiginous nevus can be confused with a café au lait macule. In agminated melanocytic nevi, the background skin is not hyperpigmented, unlike that in speckled lentiginous nevus. In partial unilateral lentiginosis, multiple lentigines are grouped together on skin that has a normal color.
