The case of a patient showing a typical nevus anemicus in close proximity of a port-wine stain is reported. Both nevi are functional anomalies, the difference between them being the tone of the cutaneous vessels. This case is a good example of vascular twin nevus. The mechanism of twin spotting offers a suitable explanation for the possible co-occurence of the 2 nevi.
