• A case of cutis verticis gyrata (CVG) occurred in a patient with no known associated disorders. Under the present classification system, patients with primary CVG are all grouped together. We propose subclassifying patients with primary CVG into two groups: those with associated neurologic and ophthalmologic diseases and those without. Our patient was treated with a scalp reduction procedure.
