We present a case of squamous cell carcinoma arising in a naevus sebaceous of Jadassohn (NSJ) in a 15-year-old girl. Both these events are rare, and this is the first reported case of a squamous cell carcinoma developing in NSJ in a child. The previous literature on sebaceous naevi and malignancies arising thereof is reviewed and discussed. Early excision is recommended in any cases of nodular change in sebaceous naevi in all age groups.
