    Nevus spilus, also known as speckled lentiginous nevus, is a relatively common cutaneous lesion that is characterized by multiple pigmented macules within a pigmented patch. It may be congenital or acquired, and it can show the histological features of congenital melanocytic nevus (CMN). The possible relationship between nevus spilus and CMN has been contentious. We report a case of a congenital nevus that followed the line of Blaschko and clinically manifested as nevus spilus, but showed the histological features of CMN.
