Congenital panfollicular nevus

Congenital panfollicular nevus is a rare benign skin tumor disorder characterized by the presence of congenital large (few centimeters) elevated well-circumscribed pink-tan multinodular non-ulcerative bosselated-surface skin lesions located on the neck scalp or hand and which enlarge with time. Histologically hamartomatous proliferation containing irregularly arranged malformed hair follicles in various stages of development surrounded by fibrous tissue and densely distributed within the dermis is observed.
