Spitz's nevus is a relatively frequent lesion that appears in children, it is usually a benign lesion and completely asymptomatic. Some lesions, especially those located in the extremities, have an appearance similar to melanoma, so the differential diagnosis with this pathology must be established. The management of this type of nevus depends on the clinical characteristics, as well as the age of the patient.
