Figure 1: (a) Melanoma (thickness Breslow 4.4 mm) involving the upper lip, vermillion edge and the skin above the upper lip. A whitish post-surgical scar is seen at the center. (b) Dermatoscopic appearance of the melanoma of the upper lip and vermillion in January, 2010: A typical multi-component pattern was observed, including a homogeneous and partly ring-like pattern. According to classification of the mucosal changes by Blum et al.[1] 3 patterns of pigmented lines were noted: Reticular and parallel lines, a pattern of dots, and circles. (c) Dermatoscopic appearance of the mucosal part of the upper lip in March, 2011: Partially arranged multiple dots and a blue pseudo-veil sign are noted
