Nevus sebaceous

Nevus sebaceous on the scalp Nevus sebaceous (or nevus sebaceus, also known as an "Organoid nevus"[1], and "Nevus sebaceous of Jadassohn"[2]) is a congenital, hairless plaque that typically occurs on the face or scalp.[3] Such nevi are present at birth, affecting males and females of all races equally.[4] The condition is named for an overgrowth of sebaceous glands in the area of the nevus.

Sebaceous nevi can give rise to sebaceous carcinoma.[5] However, the rate of such malignancies is now known to be less than was previously estimated. For this reason, excision is no longer automatically recommended.[6]
