AbstractA case of giant congential nevomelanocytic nevus with satellite lesions, vitiligo and lipoma is described, owing to the rarity of the association. The constellation of finding can be explained on the basis of a defect in the neural crest, which is considered to be a common origin of melanoblasts, Schwann cells, sensory ganglia, bone, fat, muscle and blood vessels.
