HPI: A 36 year-old woman presented in a panic with a recently discovered dark-brown to black macule on the heel of her left foot. It had been brought to her attention by her pedicurist. The patient had consulted the Internet and found articles about acrolentiginous melanoma which worried her greatly. Anamnesis revealed that she had been Zumba dancing a few days before this was discovered.
At two weeks out, the area is almost completely resolved, this confirming the diagnosis of talon noir.
