Abstract
Cutis verticis gyrata(CVG) is a morphologic syndrome of the scalp characterized by folds and furrows resembling the surface of brain. The primary form of cutis verticis gyrata is commonly associated with a neuropsychiatric condition and a secondary form occurs as a response of inflammatory or neoplastic process. The patient was a 1-day-old girl, who had a 15?1 cm sized, convoluted mass over whole scalp. Skin biopsy from the lesion was consistent with cerebriform intradermal nevus. The baby girl was followed up as an outpatient with monitoring of the scalp lesion for 2 years and showed improvement of folds and furrows of the lesion.
Key Words: Cutis verticis gyrata, Cerebriform intradermal nevus, Neonate
