Is It Possible to Treat Giant Congenital Hairy Melanocytic Nevus Clinically?
Introduction: Congenital hairy melanocytic nevus (CHMN) is considered a rare congenital disease, which appears in about 1 / 20,000 births. Giant congenital hairy melanocytic nevus (GCHMN) happens each 50,000 to 500,000 births. CHMN develops during the first trimester of pregnancy, and the etiology remains unknown. The treatment usually occurs with the use of dermabrasion and phenol peeling, which seeks to remove the first layers of the melanocytic nevus, with aesthetic goals. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, CHMN can be caused by the invasion of external pathogens, such as Wind, leading to stagnation of Qi and Blood, blocking the channels and vessels, causing the occurrence of the lesions, or by a deficiency of Kidney’s energy.
Purpose: To demonstrate that GCHMN may have clinical treatment and positive responses, avoiding surgical procedures.
Methods: A case report of a 6-month-old male patient diagnosed with GCHMN; different doctors evaluated his condition as untreatable. The surgery was an option, with the removal of the affected tissue and transplantation of normal skin tissue, but as the disease was spread all over the body, it was almost impossible. After hearing from another physician with insight into Traditional Chinese and quantum medicine, the patient was treated with acupuncture, received Chinese dietary counseling and quantum medication.
Results: Significant clinical improvement was observed with the treatment, with less pigmentation of the lesions.
Conclusion: There is a clinical treatment for GCHMN. For this goal, the physician must have a holistic view of the patient and not focus solely on the injury of the skin itself.
