Abstract:  We present five cases of an unusual phenotype of nevus sebaceus characterized by large, pink, exophytic nodules. In all cases, no evidence of extracutaneous disease or associated syndromes was observed. We review the clinical presentation of nevus sebaceus, the differential diagnosis of exophytic scalp tumors in the newborn, as well as management of these lesions.
