Dermatol Sinica 16: 97-101, 1998

A two-month-old male infant was found to have linear orange-yellow flat papuloplaques on the right half of the face and scalp, and linear brown figured verrucous papuloplaques on the left side of the trunk and limbs since birth. The skin lesions corresponded to the Blaschko's lines. No assocated anomalies of the neurological, ocular, and usculoskeletal systems were found. Both skin biopsy specimens taken from the scalp and left thigh showed histologic features of a nevus sebaceus. Extensive nevus sebaceus without associated anomalies has not been reported before. The patient needs to be followed regularly for the possibility of the development of linear nevus sebaceus syndrome.
