A 13-year-old boy suddenly developed about 2,000 dark brown to black colored papules on his face and neck and about 500 lesions on his trunk and upper extremities during a six month period. Histopathologic features were compatible with junctional nevus. The results of alpha melanocyte stimulating hormone (MSH), proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGF/R) studies are presented. To the best of our knowledge, this report represents an outbreak of the highest number of nevocellular nevi in a short period without any malignant nature or evident triggering factor.
