Widespread melanocytic nevi may rarely appear suddenly after a severe bullous disease. We describe two patients in whom eruptive melanocytic nevi developed 3 weeks after a severe episode of Stevens-Johnson syndrome. Benign melanocytic proliferation may develop after a bullous dermatosis and should not be confused with malignant or metastatic melanoma.
