Congenital nevi are hyperpigmented macular lesions that are derivatives of the melanoblasts. They occur in less than 1% of the neonates in any site of the body. The giant congenital nevus is greater than 20 cm in size, pigmented and often hairy. Between 4% and 6% of these lesions develop into a maligant melanoma, early removal is recommended. We report a unique case of giant nevi along with a review of the literature .
