DORADO CRIADO, Marta; FABRA GARRIDO, Celia; RUEDA CARNERO, José Manuel  and  MOLINA GUTIERREZ, Miguel Ángel. Atypical mongolian spot: a diagnostic challenge. Rev Pediatr Aten Primaria [online]. 2018, vol.20, n.79, pp.245-247. ISSN 1139-7632.

The Mongolian spot or dermal melanocytosis is the most common pigmented lesion of the newborn. It is located typically in the lumbo-sacral region and it is not common to be found in other regions of the body. We present the case of a patient with a Mongolian spot in the distal region of the leg, external malleolus and the back of the left foot.

Keywords : Infant, newborn; Congenital abnormalities; Mongolian spot; Skin.
