Congenital nevus on the abdomen

Congenital nevus on the abdomen

Overview

Congenital nevi are present at birth and may range in size from less than one centimeter to the giant "bathing trunk" nevus, which covers a large area of the body. Skin texture may range from normal to raised, nodular to irregular, and they are frequently darkly pigmented. Melanomas may develop more easily in congenital nevi.
