Abstract
The congenital giant pigmented nevus, also known as bathing trunk nevus, is a severely disfiguring lesion covering large areas of the body surface. Although the occurrence of giant nevi in childhood is uncommon, it is frequent enough to represent a source of guilt for parents, and psychic trauma, and is advised. For those patients who do not choose to undergo surgical removal of the lesion or who are not surgical candidates, close follow-up every six to 12 month of life female. We report this case with brief review of some related literature.
