Description of Disability:

Pigmented verrucous nevus (multiple branches of birth mark or mole) of right ear. Linear verrucous epidermal nevus (also known as a "Linear epidermal nevus," and "Verrucous epidermal nevus") is a skin lesion characterized by a verrucous skin-colored, dirty-gray or brown papule. Generally, multiple papules present simultaneously, and coalesce to form a serpiginous plaque. This is thought to be a variant form of sebaceous naevus (naevus sebaceous) and is a hamartomatous tumour characterised by hyperplasia of the epidermis and/or its associated components. They may present in a variety of forms - Becker's naevus, verrucous epidermal naevus, inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal naevus, naevus comedonicus, eccrine naevus, apocrine naevus and white sponge naevus.


When small nevi are removed, the surrounding skin is simply pulled together and stitched up. Removal of a large nevus involves the replacement of the affected skin. Skin can be transferred from another area of the body (grafting), or adjacent skin can be stretched, then used to cover the area where the nevus was removed (tissue expansion).

Post operative care: 

Routine measures of rest, elevation and immobilization of part are followed.
