Congenital melanocytic nevi (CMN) are benign lesions consisting of nests of nevus melanocytes. Sometimes, they can involve contiguous portions of the upper and lower eyelids giving the appearance of a single lesion when the eye is closed. For this reason, it is called “divided nevus”. Divided nevi, especially in a genital location, are very rare. Herein we report two cases of divided nevus in different localizations: the eyelids and the penis.
