Epidermal nevi are benign proliferations of the epidermis for which different treatments have been used with disappointing results due to their recurrences and anesthetic scars. 

Topical therapies have generally been ineffective and surgical treatment provides more definitive results, but with high risk of scarring. In recent years, multiple laser modalities have been described for the treatment of these lesions. In the literature, there are no reported cases of treatment of these lesions with Neodymium-doped Yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser.

We present the case of a 3-year-old patient with a hemicorporal epidermal nevus treated with Nd:YAG laser at an early stage with good results.
