Kissing or divided nevi are similar in shape to congenital melanocytic nevi located on an adjacent part of the body that are separated during embryogenesis . The lesion in the photograph is arranged in the margins of the upper and lower eyelids, due to this distribution its edges touch or “kiss” whenever the eyelids are closed. During developmental separation of eyelids, the single formed nevus undergoes a division and appears as two different entities . We present this case for its beauty and uniqueness, in addition to the fact that the periocular location of this type of nevus is rare (Figure 1).
