Nevus sebaceous of Jadassohn (NSJ) is a cutaneous hamartoma commonly found in the scalp and face and more frequent in children. Clinically, it presents as a yellowish and hairless plaque. In later stages, the NSJ can develop secondary tumors, including skin cancer. We reviewed the ultrasound characteristics of 9 patients (67% female; mean age, 3 years) with NSJ at 18 and 70 MHz. The ultrasound analysis covers the data on the location, thickness, echo structure, and vascularity. The provision of the ultrasound patterns of NSJ can support early diagnosis, avoid unnecessary biopsies, and support monitoring.
