Inflammatory Linear Verrucous Epidermal Nevus

Author and Disclosure Information

Inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus (ILVEN) is an unusual unilateral eruption with onset usually in infancy or childhood, female predominance, frequent left leg involvement, pruritus, refractoriness to therapy, and a psoriasiform histologic pattern. We review this disorder in describing a 5-year-old girl who also had melanodontia, an association not previously observed to our knowledge.
