The life of a melanocytic nevus can be conceptually divided into 3 stages: inception to growth, senescence, and involution. Dermoscopy has provided insights into understanding the first 2 stages of nevogenesis.1- 3 Herein, we show longitudinal changes in dermoscopic features of nevi that highlight distinct pathways to nevus involution.
