Department of Dermatology, SMG-SNU Boramae Medical Center, Seoul, Korea.


Several dermatoses have been reported in association with Becker's nevus. Eczematous dermatitis associated with Becker's nevus is extremely rare, described in only two previous case reports. We report a case of 21-year-old male with recurrent eczema lesions which were always localized within the underlying Becker's nevus lesion. This case may be explained as a Wolf's isotopic response-like phenomenon.
