It is likely that most acquired melanocytic naevi start as junctional naevi (Fig. 5), which progress over time to compound naevi (Fig. 6) and then intradermal naevi (Fig. 7). This means that in children and teenagers, most melanocytic naevi are junctional and compound, evolving to intradermal naevi in adults between 20 and 30 years.
