Abstract Treatment of a linear verrucous epidermal nevus using topical 0.1\% tretinoin cream and 5\% 5-fluorouracil in a young patient is described. In 1994, successful topical therapy using this combination was described in the management of an inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus. We report another case in which treatment of a noninflamed epidermal verrucous nevus with 0.1\% tretinoin and 5\% 5-fluorouracil resulted in significant improvement. An updated summary of the literature discussing management of epidermal nevi is presented.
