Nevus comedonicus (NC) is a type of an epidermal nevus which was first described in 1895 by Kofmann. Clinically, it is characterized by linear lesion comprising numerous dilated follicular openings with keratinous plugs resembling classical comedones, seen mainly on the head and neck area followed by trunk and upper arm. Treatment options of NC include topical therapy, laser, and surgery. NC associated with epidermoid cyst is rare. We report here a case of NC affecting middle part of the neck over left sternocleidomastoid muscle with epidermoid cysts which was surgically treated.
