We report two cases of the epidermal naevus syndrome in two Libyan patients. The newborn female infant presented with multiple sebaceous naevi in the head, neck, trunk, and limbs, melanocytic naevi and dermatomegaly associated with coarctation of the aorta, patent ductus arteriosus, and ECG changes, left microphthalmia and cataract together with CNS anomalies. The other patient was a seventeen year-old male patient who presented with epidermal naevi, bone and eye changes. To the best of our knowledge these are the first reported Libyan cases of this syndrome.
