Abstract

A case of hypopigmented pityriasis versicolor superimposed on pre existing Becker's naevus associated with congenital melanocytic naevus is being reported for its rarity. The possible role of dicarboxylic acid and other free radicles produced by Pityrosporum ovale in treating Becker's Naevus is also suggested.
