We observed 4 individuals with the acanthosis nigricans (AN) form of epidermal nevus, with clinical and histopathologic features of AN oriented along Blaschko's lines. Three patients had stable lesions since childhood. One patient concurrently had typical bilateral AN lesions. This condition may represent a mosaic form of AN.
