We report a 30-year-old female patient with a history of hyperpigmented macules of the face since the age of 7 years. The clinical appearance, brown macules in multiple segmental or grouped patterns, was suggested to be agminated lentigines. However, histologic examination of the pigmented macule revealed scattered melanocytes within the dermis. We diagnosed this lesion as a bilateral type of nevus of Ota presenting as agminated lentigines. The differential diagnosis from acquired bilateral nevus of Ota-like macules was made.
