Abstract

Inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus is an uncommon variant of epidermal nevus, caused by unknown postzygotic mutation rescued by genetic mosaicism. Clinically, it presents as intensely pruritic, erythematous, psoriasiform and verrucous, papules and plaques following the lines of Blaschko, mostly involving the single leg. It has usually early life onset. However, since its first description, very few cases have been reported which were of adult onset. Herein, we report a case of ILVEN in a 22‑year‑old male.
