Spindle cells around vessels

Is this tumour's schema

Should I call it perivascular myoma or myopericytoma?

I thought I saw some rare nests in the epidermis in Fig 8. So I'm thinking of a melanocytic lesion. Don't think it's a neurothekeoma.

Agree that there are some nests in the epidermis, but the cells in the lower dermis are elongated and show whirling pattern. Could be a co-existing melanocytic nevus.

I think it is a spitz nevus. If substantial mitotic figures than atypical spitzoid tumor.

Ok. Couldn't diagnose because I haven't seen any. Here in India we hardly biopsy any nevi as melanoma is a rarity

Dr Chaudhry: 

 

Yes final diagnosis was a Spindle cell Naevus with Spitzoid features.

Yes agree with Spitz. Do you think this pattern would be ALK related? Or would be desmoplastic like Dr Carr suggested ? just curious.

Dear Mani, Nice question. I'd say it could be ALK case but I'll see if Arnaud de la Fouchardiere might take a look and comment.
