Özet

Background/Aim The number of melanocytic nevi strongly influences risk of melanoma. Researchers have therefore been prompted to study the epidemiology of nevi, particularly in children. Our aim was to determine the clinical and dermoscopic characteristics of melanocytic nevi in Turkish children and their relationship with environmental factors.
