We evaluated the possibility of nevus spilus together with segmental lentiginosis in the differential diagnosis of the pigmented lentiginous lesions.1 The absence of pigmentation on the background of facial lesions and the histopathological compatibility with lentigo in the biopsy from pigmented macules suggested the possibility of segmental lentiginosis. However, the underlying pigmentation of the trunk and leg lesions is confusing. These findings may be different melanocytic lesions associated with neurofibromatosis rather than true segmental lentiginosis or nevus spilus.2 New cases and genetic studies yet to be added to the literature may help shed light on this point.
