Epidermal nevi are benign congenital hamartomas derived from the embryonal ectoderm. They may also be associated with anomalies of musculoskeletal, nervous, ocular, and rarely cardiovascular and urogenital system in an epidermal nevus syndrome. To find out these abnormalities, careful history taking, thorough physical evaluation, and long-term follow-up are advisable in a patient with wide spread epidermal nevus. We report a case of diffuse epidermal nevi involving the scalp, face, trunk, and limbs in a newborn.
Key Words: Diffuse epidermal nevi; Epidermal nevus syndrome; Neonate
