Yes: Nevus of ota, described by ota and tanino in 1939, is a hamartoma of dermal melanocytes which presents as a blue or gray patch on face, which is congenital or acquired in the distribution v1 and v2 nerve. Associated ocular complications need to be treated. Good success rates & minimal adverse effects have been reported with the q-switched ruby, q-sw alexandrite, q-sw nd:yag lasers multiple times.
