Becker’s nevus (BN), a cutaneous hamartoma, is usually seen in the upper half of the trunk during puberty. Location of BN at other sites is an exception. The theory of somatic mosaicism and androgen sensitivity supports the origin and characteristics of BN. Here, we report an interesting and unusual case of BN on face with asymmetric growth of beard and acne on the same with complete absence of hair on other side of the face. The author aims to highlight a rare clinical presentation of common condition and the first of its kind from Nepal.
