We describe a newborn child with a giant congenital melanocytic naevus (GCMN). GCMN have a diameter of at least 40 centimeters (projected adult size), can have a very heterogeneous phenotype and are associated with malignant melanoma (MM) and neurocutaneous melanosis (NCM). By classification and by creating a risk profile, according to the new guideline ‘congenital melanocytic naevi’, parents were advised regarding further diagnostic evaluation, treatment and follow-up.
