From the clinical and dermoscopy images, describe what you notice. How you would biopsy this lesion?

  1. Large PSL on right shoulder with dermoscopic chaos and clues of blue-grey clod and structureless area. Deep shave biopsy of the whole lesion is possible to confirm the pathology.

  2. Chaos of structure and colour, and clues of grey area and eccentric structureless area and a small area of thick line reticular….excision biopsy to rule out MM.
