The article discusses a clinical study of melanocytic nevi in children. Potential markers for neurocutaneous melanosis include headache, irritability, lethargy, photophobia, recurrent vomiting, loss of developmental milestones and seizures. The need for a sentinel lymph node biopsy in cases of a Spitz nevi and melanocytic tumors of uncertain malignant potential is emphasized.
