Abstract This article discusses the care of patients with CMN, who often require a multidisciplinary approach involving pediatricians, family physicians, internists, dermatologists, psychologists, plastic surgeons, neurologists, and radiologists. The cosmetic and psychosocial issues, combined with the knowledge of the increased risk of developing melanoma or NCM, is a huge burden that many of these patients and their families have to carry. This article describes the importance for physicians to help these patients and families come to terms with these issues, as well as remind their patients and their family members that although melanoma, NCM, or other complications can develop, most affected individuals do not develop any complications. The article mentions that there are many healthy, happy, functional adults with large, small, and multiple CMN alive today.
