AbstractA novel non-inflammatory type of pigmentation of the neck associated with nematode larvae on affected skin is described. The name 'Blue neck syndrome' is suggested for this condition because of the characteristic clinical appearance. Antinematode agents such as albendazole and neem oil have been found to be effective in the treatment.
