We present a 30-year-old woman with a solitary circumscribed neuroma (also known as palisaded encapsulated neuroma) diagnosed after surgical excision. We describe the histopathologic correlation and the dermoscopic features we found in this tumor, which have not been previously reported in the literature to our knowledge.
