Giant congenital melanocytic nevi (GCMN) are a rare occurrence. They arise from mutations in either BRAF or NRAS genes. The major complications associated with GCMN are malignant melanoma and neurocutaneous melanosis. Management of GCMN is symptomatic. We present a rare case of a 20-year-old woman born with GCMN.
