    Girl born with congenital melanocytic nevus

    Girl born with congenital melanocytic nevus, a rare genetic mutation that is developed during embryonic development and that affects less than 1% of infants worldwide. These mutations could be corrected in the future, using CRISPR-based techniques.


    A melanocytic nevus (also known as "nevocytic nevus" or "nevus-cell nevus" is a type of lesion that contains nevus cells (a type of melanocyte). Some sources equate the term mole with "melanocytic nevus". Other sources reserve the term "mole" for other purposes.


    The majority of moles appear during the first two decades of a person's life, with about one in every 100 babies being born with moles. Acquired moles are a form of benign neoplasm, while congenital moles, or congenital nevi, are considered a minor malformation or hamartoma and may be at a higher risk for melanoma. A mole can be either subdermal (under the skin) or a pigmented growth on the skin, formed mostly of a type of cell known as a melanocyte. The high concentration of the body's pigmenting agent, melanin, is responsible for their dark color. Moles are a member of the family of skin lesions known as nevi.
