Unilateral Inflammatory Linear Verrucous Epidermal Naevus of the Face and the Oral Mucosa. A Rare Case

Epidermal nevi are a type of hamartomatous skin lesion that is characterised by an overgrowth of normal epidermal and adnexal structures. Yellowish-brown, granular, or papillomatuous plaques, often arranged in a linear or whorled form following Blaschko’s lines, are the clinical symptoms. These lesions are frequently visible at birth and gradually grow in size throughout infancy. Then, by adolescence, they tend to stabilise [1]. Epidermal nevus syndrome (ENS) is a disorder in which epidermal nevi are linked to developmental problems in various organ systems, including the nervous, ophthalmic, cardiovascular, and urological systems. 30 percent of those with epidermal nevi had extra syndrome symptoms, according to studies [2,1]. Oral involvement is relatively uncommon [3,] with only a few examples documented in the literature.

The purpose of this paper was to describe the case of a 9-year-old boy who had an inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus on his right cheek that had spread into his buccal mucosa. To discuss various therapy options and their potential outcomes.
