Review of nevi for medical education using digital pathology tools

A new peer reviewed article of interest:


The aim of the study is to use digital images of nevi as a diagnostic and prognostic tool for studying skin pathology. Studies on pigmented nevi (moles) attract medical attention by the fact that they signal to the specialized medical team possible malignant degeneration.. Nevi samples were taken from different areas of the body in children under the age of 18 years.


The analysis of pigmented nevi is undertaken by observations on microscopic preparations, usually colored using the Hematoxylin & Eosin stain (H&E), which enables comparative analyzes to be made with the adjacent regions of the nevi. Collated data can include classifications by age groups, by sex, by urban or rural area. In order to advance medical education, capturing digital images of nevi can provide a powerful training tool. For example through the presentation of data to medical students it is possible to draw attention to the types of traumatized nevi that could possibly degenerate into malignancy.
