Nevus comedonicus is a rare type of nevus originating from the epithelial part of the center of the pilosebase unit. It is characterized by the combination of the dilated follicular openings resembling comedones. It may be seen in any part of the body but especially face and neck. History and clinical examination leads to the diagnosis and there is no need to perform a histopathological examination in most cases. The diagnosis can be supported by dermoscopic findings.The dermoscopy of our case was similar to the findings of the present reports.This case is presented for emphasizing the point that dermoscopy can be supportive for the diagnosis of nevus comedonicus and for contributing to the literature with its dermoscopic findings.
