A newborn infant presenting with a divided congenital melanocytic naevus of the eyelid is described. Because of the severe disfigurement, risk of later malignant change in the lesion, and the possibility of deprivation amblyopia, early surgical treatment is recommended for all medium and large congenital melanocytic naevi of the eyelid. Surgery in the first few months of life gives the best cosmetic results.
