• The cutaneous manifestations of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome include infections and neoplasms resulting from the immunodeficient state. Seven patients presenting with the symptom of new eruptive nevi with dysplastic histologic findings are described. These patients noted multiple new moles, which occurred in crops and in individuals without the dysplastic nevus syndrome (familial melanomas). This symptom occurred as the patients became symptomatic from their human immunodeficiency virus infection, developing acquired immunodeficiency syndrome or its related complex. Further confirmation and study of this phenomenon could lead to a better understanding of the pathogenesis of melanocytic dysplasia and its relationship to the immune system.
