Please find the description and diagnosis from Dr. Chaudhry:

 

Dear all this was a challenging case shown to 4 pathologists - please see below: 

 

Skin with a dermal pigmented asymmetrical melanocytic lesion. The dendritic and epithelioid melanocytes extend into reticular dermis/ subcutis and have a cellular, nested and fascicular with abundant pigment. No junctional component is seen. Plump regular nests of melanocytes are noted. There is moderate cytologic atypia with some nuclear pleomorphism, small to medium-sized eosinophilic nucleoli; mitotic figures are inconspicuous with moderate mononuclear inflammatory cell infiltrate. There is an absence of maturation. The proliferation index is low.

The features are those of a deep penetrating naevus-like borderline tumor.

 

Eur J Dermatol. 2014 Sep-Oct;24(5):594-602.

Deep penetrating nevus-like borderline tumors: A unique subset of ambiguous melanocytic tumors with malignant potential and normal cytogenetics. Magro CM1, Abraham RM2, Guo R3, Li S4, Wang X1, Proper S5, Crowson AN6, Mihm M7.
