Abstract

Patients with large benign melanocytic lesions located on the neck represent a therapeutic challenge since the neck is a high-risk area for hypertrophic scarring and/or retraction. When treating a benign, extensive and visible melanocytic lesion, the choice of therapy mainly depends on the likelihood of improved cosmesis. We report a case of a 33-year-old woman with a medium-sized Nevus Spilus located on the neck, successfully treated with four sessions of pulsed dye laser. We achieved an excellent clinical and cosmetic result in such a challenging area. No scarring, distortion or significant dyscromia were observed after 24 months.
