Congenital Nevus

Abstract
Congenital melanocytic nevi (CMN) are one of the most frequent skin lesions encountered at birth. They are composed of collections of melanocytes (pigment-forming cells) that show distinct clinical and histopathological features. They also present a different biological behavior to acquired melanocytic nevi.[1]  Their clinical relevance relies on their association with the development of malignant melanoma and with central nervous system (CNS) involvement (neurocutaneous melanosis), which are greatly dependent on their size.[2] This article will discuss the etiology, clinical features, diagnosis, and management of CMN.
