A 10-year-old girl presented with a giant, hairy melanocytic nevus over the entire back extending to the chest and abdomen amounting to more than 20% of the skin surface [Figure - 1]a and [Figure - 1]b. Multiple macular lesions of similar morphology, ranging in size from few mm to 4 cm, were noted over the buttocks, legs, arms, palms and soles. Interspersed with the giant truncal melanocytic nevus flesh-colored, non-hairy plaques were observed on the central back [Figure - 1]a and [Figure - 1]b. Mucosal examination demonstrated multiple nevi in the oral, ocular and genital mucosa [Figure - 1]c,[Figure - 1]d,[Figure - 1]e. The left big toe showed melanonychia. Biopsies taken from the black and flesh-colored lesions were consistent with compound and intradermal melanocytic nevi, respectively.
