Giant congenital melanocytic nevi are very rare, with an estimated incidence of 1 in 20,000 live births. They have a high risk of malignant melanoma transformation and neurological deficits such as neurocutaneous melanocytosis and epilepsy. Early evaluation, surgical intervention and careful long term follow up are recommended to monitor for malignant transformation. We report one case of giant congenital melanocytic nevi diagnosed at birth with the related literatures.
