Nevus refers to a maternal impression or birthmark. Various categories of nevi have been described in literature, with newer presentations being continuously reported. At times, gigantic presentations of melanocytic nevi may alarm patients to seek medical attention. Most often, though, these nevi are totally benign, the excision of which is indicated solely for cosmetic indications. We hereby report a case of corymbiform nevi, a morphologic rare subtype of lobulated intradermal nevi, which presented as a huge plaque, and is being reported because of its rarity, and the first of its kind from the Indian subcontinent.
