abstract

  • The presence of large numbers of satellite nevi is the most important risk factor for NCM in patients with LCMN. Although location of the LCMN on the posterior axis was a moderate risk factor for NCM in univariate analysis, the strength of the relationship was attenuated in the multivariate analysis.
