We describe the case of a 42 year old woman who presented malignant melanoma on an 8-cm acquired speckled lentiginous nevus on the inferior part of her leg. Although melanoma arising in speckled lentiginous nevus is a rare occurrence, dermatologists and plastic surgeons need to be aware that it may occur.
