We report a neonate who presented at birth with multiple, scattered, white macerated plaques. Punch biopsy confirmed epidermal nevi. At 3 months of age the patient presented with infantile spasms and, after full evaluation, was diagnosed with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). We suggest that physicians consider TSC in a neonate with epidermal nevi inconsistent with any described epidermal nevus syndrome.
