Figure 2: Eruptive melanocytic nevi. (a) Scattered and grouped brownish to blackish macules and papules appeared suddenly within 1 and 6 months after toxic epidermal necrolysis. (b) Dermoscopy showed pigmented networks in most lesions, indicating junctional activity of the melanocytes. (c) The skin biopsy showed melanocytic proliferation limited to the epidermis (H and E, ×40). (d) There were a few nests in the epidermis with basal hyperpigmentation (H and E, ×400), and (e) pigment incontinence in the papillary dermis (H and E, ×400)
