We report an 8-year-old girl affected by hypochromic, asymptomatic, acquired lesions with a paving-stone aspect on the right lumbosacral area and proximal right leg. The results of serum and urine biochemical screening were normal, as was the bone survey A biopsy was performed. The clinical and histologic aspects led to the diagnosis of connective tissue nevus with zosteriform distribution.
