Benign pigmented dermatosis and melanocytic nevus (melanocytic nevus) are common in children and adolescents. Freckle nevus is a benign pigmented spot caused by increased melanocyte activity in the epidermis. Freckle nevus is different from freckles. Freckles are common in light-skinned children. Avoiding sunlight can gradually fade away, while freckle nevus persists. There are two main types of freckle nevus: simple freckle nevus and sunlight freckle nevus. Mucosal melanoma is a variant of simple lentiginous nevus, located on the surface of mucosa, especially on the lower lip. Simple freckle nevus often occurs in childhood. It shows round to elliptical spots with clear boundary, uniform brown or brown-black, usually less than 5 mm in diameter. The number of spots is usually small and does not occur easily in the sun. However, multiple lentigo can be seen in a variety of diseases, and in patients with Addison's disease or other syndromes with increased corticotropic hormone circulatory levels, the number of lentigo may increase or the color may deepen. Mucosal melanoma is most common in the lower lip of the lip, which is more common in white teenage girls and young women. Mucosal melanoma may also occur in oral mucosa and genitals. Patients may have one or more brown to black spots, sometimes with irregular borders and patchy pigmentation. Genital lesions are occasionally larger than 1 cm in diameter. Multiple perioral and oral mucosal melanoplaques are characteristic of congenital diseases, such as Peutz-Jeghers syndrome and Laugier-Hunziker syndrome. Multiple genital melanoma is a feature of Bannayan-Riley-Ruvalcaba syndrome (PTEN hamartoma syndrome). Solar freckle nevus, unlike simple freckle nevus, is confined to the sun-exposed areas, especially those with the most accumulated sunlight, such as the face, back of hand, forearm extensor and upper trunk. Because the incidence of lentigo Solaris increases with age, it is most common in adults.  However, lentigo Solaris can also occur in children with fair skin
