A 19-year-old girl presented with a 5-month history of an asymptomatic lesion on her right forearm. Physical examination showed a red-violaceous, papular lesion of 10×5 mm in size, surrounded by a yellowish area that gradually expanded peripherally. The patient denied an history of previous trauma to the area. Dermoscopy revealed the presence of red roundish lagoon-like areas in the centre of the lesion and of a thin pigment network at the periphery. Surgical excision of the lesion and histological examination were performed. What is your diagnosis?
