Becker's melanosis, also known as Becker nevus, is a relatively common, usually affects young males, singular, cutaneous hamartoma, which is classically characterized by a unilateral hyperpigmented, hypertrichotic patch on the upper trunk or proximal upper extremities, with its onset during the peripubertal years. A 19- year-old female patient had multiple becker nevi at right arm, right mid back and left knee area. Histopathology from all the lesion are compatible with Becker’s nevus.
