Congenital oculodermal melanocytosis is also known as Nevus of Ota, condition where blue nevus of skin and orbit are seen with ipsilateral nevus in conjunctiva and iris. They are often associated with glaucoma which can occur at any age. They can have melanocytosis and develop choroidal melanoma. We report a case of a middle-aged female with facial pigmentation and bilateral scleral, conjunctival, and iris nevus with an advanced glaucomatous change in both eyes and pigmentation of the palatal mucosa. Trabeculectomy with mitomycin-C application was done in the left eye. Gastrointestinal endoscopy by gastroenterologist showed gastritis and Helicobacter pylori infection.
