Epidermal nevus (EN) is a type of noncancerous skin growth that looks like a patch of brownish warts. Epidermal nevus is most commonly noticeable at birth or may develop in early childhood. An epidermal nevus often grows along an invisible line of the body known as the lines of Blaschko. Pictured is a young man with an epidermal nevus on the nape of his neck.
