Congenital Nevi

A congenital nevus, also known as a mole, is a type of pigmented birthmark that appears at birth or during a baby’s first year.

These moles are frequently found on the trunk or limbs, although they can appear anywhere on the body.

These occur in 1% to 2% of the population.

Giant congenital nevi may require more than one surgery in order to completely remove them, and may benefit from tissue expansion or skin grafting.
