Questionnaires were sent to the chairmen of 105 dermatology training programs and to sixty practicing dermatologists (randomly chosen from the American Academy of Dermatology directory) in order to identify current practices regarding the management of congenital nevocytic nevi. The return rate was 45.7% and 43.3%, respectively. A clear majority of dermatologists both in private practice and in academia recommend the removal of giant- and medium-sized congenital nevocytic nevi. There is less agreement among dermatologists with regard to the treatment of smaller lesions.
