A 41‐year‐old woman with a complex congenital nevus that possessed features of both a blue nevus and a nevus of Ota is described. She was found to have melanotic hyperpigmentation of the underlying subcutaneous tissue and dura mater. Two separate melanomas developed in the tissues underlying her nevus (one in the subcutaneous tissue and another intracranially, arising from the dura).
