Meyerson nevus is a rare benign entity described by Meyerson et al in 1971 as a melanocytic nevus surrounded by inflammatory, eczematous eruption that resolves spontaneously or by topical steriod therapy (fluticasone propionate, Abdi İbrahim İlaç San. ve Tic. A.Ş., İstanbul), but the nevus persists. This entity is not well known and there is limited information in the literature. Since the lesion may develop suspicion for malignancy, it is important to keep this entity in mind. In this article we present three Meyerson nevi, two of which belong to one patient.
