Damarla Sudha Vani, Arakkal Geeta Kiran, Chintagunta Sudha Rani, Siddavaram Divya Journal of Dr. NTR University of Health Sciences 2016 5(1):67-69 Development of vitiligo or halo naevus within or around congenital melanocytic naevus (CMN) is a rare phenomenon. Very few cases on regression of CMN after the onset of halo naevus or vitiligo were reported in the literature. We hereby report a case of 25 yr old female who presented with giant CMN since birth and development of vitiligo lesions within the CMN for the past 5yrs which is gradually progressing and showing regression of CMN.
