Br J Dermatol. 2005 Jun;152(6):1324-6. doi: 10.1111/j.1365-2133.2005.06463.x.


Mucous melanomas on the lip are very rare. None of the few available reports has provided a comparison of dermoscopic and histopathological findings. We describe a 33-year-old Japanese man with a mucous melanoma on the lower lip and present a comparison of our dermoscopic and histopathological findings.
