Abstract

A neonate presented with a deeply pigmented papule within a medium-sized congenital naevus. Histologically, this proved to be a benign proliferative nodule in a congenital naevus. This case is presented to highlight the occurrence of this lesion, the main differential of which is the rare entity of true congenital melanoma.
