Abstract Patients presenting with congenital melanocytic nevi (CMN) need individualized treatment based upon nevus size, thickness, location, risk for developing melanoma, and psychological characteristics of the patient and family. The present authors review CMN types and prognoses, as well as absolute and relative indications for treatment. Risks and benefits of several treatment options are discussed, including surgical options, such as excision, chemical peels, dermabrasion and curettage, and laser therapy. The main focus of treatment is, in all cases, to address the concern for developing melanoma, at the same time optimizing the aesthetic and functional outcomes.
