Abstract

The Mongolian spot or dermal melanocytosis is the most common pigmented lesion of the newborn. It is located typically in the lumbo-sacral region and it is not common to be found in other regions of the body. We present the case of a patient with a Mongolian spot in the distal region of the leg, external malleolus and the back of the left foot.
