Abstract:  A 14-month-old Caucasian male presented with a hypopigmented patch associated with increased perspiration on the right side of his back, flank, and abdomen. Starch iodide test and biopsy revealed an eccrine nevus. The truncal presentation and light color both were unique presentations of this rare hamartoma.
