Becker's nevus is an acquired and persistent asymmetrical area of skin pigmentation sometimes showing evidence of increased androgen sensitivity which typically occurs, postpuberty. Though the usual site is described as shoulder, anterior chest, or scapular region, it can occur over other unusual sites as well. We report such a rarer presentation of Becker's nevus on leg in a young female.
