The world-wide naevus community is proud to announce the creation of NaevusGlobal.org, a website dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by large congenital melanocytic naevi. We are working diligently to provide a global informational and support network for people with large/giant naevi. Please check back.
Naevus Global, in collaboration with Nevus Outreach and University Children’s Hospital Zurich, has begun a comprehensive world-wide study on the well-being of children and adolescents born with a congenital melanocytic nevus (CMN), and the well-being of their parents. Eligible for this study are parents of a child born with a nevus (from birth to 18 years old) and adolescents born with a nevus (ages 14-18 years). All cases count, whether the nevus has been surgically removed or not. The input of each family and teenager is important. (Learn more)Click here to go to the survey.
Naevus Global has released a bibliography of the best papers about congenital melanocytic nevi and neurocutaneous melanocytosis, and related conditions. The Scientific Advisory Council of Naevus Global, at the direction of their chair, French biologist Dr. Heather Etchevers, has selected the papers they feel are the most definitive and accurate from the cloud of peer-reviewed journal articles.
