Abstract To the Editor: Halo nevus, also named Sutton’s nevus or leukoderma acquisitum centrifugum, is a benign melanocytic proliferation typified by a rim of depigmentation resembling a halo.1 Previous reports on halo nevi (HN) associated with familial and/or personal melanoma drew attention to the diagnosis and management of melanocytic skin lesions displaying an encircling halo.2 We report a young female presenting with what looked like multiple HN and discuss their peculiar cause.
