Blue nevi commonly occur on the skin of head, neck, and arms, and in occasional instances they have been observed in the mucosa of oral cavity, vagina, hard palate, and even breast, and in very rarity observed in the uterine cervix. We have experienced a case of blue nevi on the uterine cervix of a 45 year old famale who was operated under the diagnosis of uterine myoma. In gross findings, besides two well circumscribed uterine myomas measuring 3.5 cm and 0.6 cm in diameter in the anterior myometrium, multiple pin-point sized grayish blue pigments measuring 2-3 mm in diameter aggregated in the submucosa of the uterine cervix. Microscopically the blue nevi showed greatly elongated, slender often slightly wavy melanocytes with long, occasionally branching dendritic processes lie grouped in irregular bundles in the submucosa of the uterine endocervix. The pigments showed positive response to the Fontana-Masson stain in the cytoplasm and the extracellular area.
