Coexistence of Congenital Giant Melanocytic Nevus of the Scalp with Cranial Defect, Poliosis, and Hair Loss

Authors


Abstract

Congenital melanocytic nevi (CMN) are pigmented lesions presenting on the skin in approximately 1% of all newborns at or shortly after birth. CMN have been described as being associated with several anomalies, including cranial bone hypertrophy, scoliosis, and spina bifida. This is the first report to describe a giant congenital melanocytic nevus on the scalp associated with cranial involvement, poliosis, and alopecia.
