Epidermal naevus syndrome is a group of congenital syndromes comprising epidermal naevi associated with a variety of developmental abnormalities of the ocular, nervous, skeletal, cardiovascular and urogenital systems. We describe a case of an 8-month-old boy with a brown alopecic plaque on his face and scalp and a vascularized epibulbar mass involving the entire cornea, which had been present since birth. Histopathological examination identified sebaceous naevus in combination with complex choristoma. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain showed hemimegalencephaly.
