Nevus achromicus is an uncommon birthmark characterized by a well-defined hypopigmented patch resembling a splash of paint. It is usually noted at birth or in early childhood. They do not progress and are mostly seen on the trunk. We report a 20-year-old young man with multiple nevus achromicus scattered over his trunk and limbs. Nevus achromicus is usually solitary, but sometimes it could be multiple wherein the distribution is segmental. Hence, this is a rare case of generalized multiple nevus achromicus and so worth reporting.
