This is a typical example of blue-whitish veil in a malignant melanoma that exhibits other melanoma-specific dermoscopic features such as streaks and irregular dots/globules

This malignant melanoma is characterized by a classic blue-whitish veil and irregular black pigmentation

A blue-whitish veil is also a rather common finding in Reed nevus as displayed in this example. The diagnosis of Reed nevus is based on the radial arrangement of streaks along the periphery (starburst pattern)

This lesion is characterized by a blue-whitish veil with a distinctive reticular appearance, also called negative pigment network, suggestive for the diagnosis of Spitz nevus

The blue-whitish veil that is visible dermoscopically in this melanoma correlates to an acanthotic epidermis with hypergranulosis above sheets of heavily pigmented melanocytes. intermingled with melanophages situated in the upper dermis

The blue-whitish veil of this pigmented Spitz nevus is due to epidermal hyperplasia, orthohyperkeratosis, and hypergranulosis over heavily pigmented nests of melanocytes
