n]vus, Latin for "birthmark") is the medical term for
sharply-circumscribed and chronic lesions of the skin. These
lesions are commonly named birthmarks and moles. Nevi are benign by
definition. Using the term nevus and nevi loosely, most physicians
and dermatologists are actually referring to a variant of nevus
called the "melanocytic nevus," which are composed of melanocytes.
Histologically, melanocytic nevi are differentiated from lentigines
(also a type of benign pigmented macule) by the presence of nests
of melanocytes, which lentigines (plural form of lentigo) lack.
