Article/Chapter Title: Nevogenesis: Changing theories
Abstract: The life cycle of most individual melanocytic nevi is shorter than the lifetime of the individual harboring them [1-3]. We are born with few or no nevi and enter old age with few or no nevi, while nevi development occurs between these two time periods (Fig. 1.1) [2-8]. This conception of nevogenesis appears relatively straightforward from a cross-sectional perspective, when only total nevus counts are considered. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2012.
