Nevus are type of skin pigmentation also called “Birth marks” present at birth, the color, shape, size, type, location and clinical significance varies from infant to infant. Majority of the Nevus are benign in nature but some may have immediate and late structural abnormalities including cancerous changes. They have to be identified and monitored for not only cosmetic purposes also their clinical course. We report a healthy newborn infant presented with large Nevus on right upper limb which is similar in color, but different location of a dermal Melanocytosis which is also commonly called “Mongolian spots”. The condition, though benign, but cosmetically disfigured. Parents have to be counseled for close follow-up.
