Becker nevus is a benign skin disorder predominantly affecting males.The nevus usually shows up around puberty. It generally first appears as an irregular pigmentation on the torso or upper arm, and gradually enlarges irregularly, becoming thickened and often become hairy (hypertrichosis).

The hair overlaying on the nevus can be removed with a laser. However, due to the high recurrence rate, it is almost impossible to remove nevi with lasers.

  • It is characterized by a large nevus with abundant hair growth over the area.
  • Laser treatment may be challenging due to persistent hyperpigmentation.
