Abstract

Congenital nevi remain a constant and challenging clinical entity for plastic surgeons due to the unsettled question regarding the true incidence of conversion to melanoma. This paper will review the recent distinction described in the literature. To truly obtain a current authoritative accord, a new interdisciplinary consensus conference should probably be convened to review and initiate new standards regarding available treatment modalities and their indications.
