Differential Diagnosis

History: Epidermal nevi are often present at birth but may develop in early childhood or adolescence.  The lesion typically occurs on the trunk or extremities along the lines of Blaschko but may occur on the face and neck. The characteristic epidermal nevus is a linear, hyperpigmented plaque, which can vary from pink to black, velvety to verrucous, and subtle to thick.
