Nevus anemicus in neurofibromatosis type 1: A potential new diagnostic criterion. Children with multiple café-au-laitmacules (CALMs) may be followed for years before a second National Institutes of Health clinical criterion of neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) develops to confirm the diagnosis.We sought to assess the prevalence of nevus anemicus (NA) in NF1 and its association with neuro-ophthalmologic complications.This was a prospective multicenter case-control study of 210 consecutive patients
Can the diagnosis of NF1 be excluded clinically? A lack of pigmentary findings in families with spinal neurofibromatosis demonstrates a limitation of clinical diagnosis. Consensus clinical diagnostic criteria for neurofibromatosis type I (NF1) include café-au-laitmacules and skinfold freckling. The former are frequently the earliest manifestation of NF1, and as such are of particular significance when assessing young children at risk of the condition. A phenotype of predominantly spinal
. Complete skin examination was done by a single dermatologist. Information about mutations and neurologic status was extracted from the patients' charts. Relevant demographic, clinical, and laboratory characteristics of all patients were collected and summarized.Of the 32 patients, 97% had ocular telangiectasia, the hallmark of the disease. Telangiectasia on other body parts was less frequent. Pigmentary anomalies included café-au-laitmacules (84%), hypopigmented macules (44%), and melanocytic nevi (37
with various vascular or other pigmented birthmarks like café-au-laitmacules. Co-existing Mongolian spots and vascular birthmarks like nevus flammeus, nevus anemicus or nevus spilus is termed as phakomatosis pigmentovascularis. This review focuses on the important associations of Mongolian spots and stresses upon the importance of screening babies with extensive MS.
Hansen's disease with McCuneâ€“Albright syndrome McCune-Albright syndrome (MAS) comprises a triad of fibrous dysplasia of bone, café-au-laitmacule, and endocrinopathy. The disease is due to activating mutation of G protein-coupled receptor leading to hyperfunction of glands. Hansen's disease is caused by infection with Mycobacterium leprae and is seen with underlying immunosuppressed conditions in genetically predisposed individuals. We recently encountered a patient with Hansen's disease
%), followed by infantile hemangioma (4.5% by age 3 months), capillary malformation (0.3%), and rapidly involuting congenital hemangioma (0.3%). Pigmented lesions seen at birth included dermal melanocytosis (20%), congenital melanocytic nevi (2.4%), and café aulaitmacules (2%). Other common skin findings were erythema toxicum neonatorum (7%), milia (8%), and sebaceous gland hyperplasia (42.6%).This study of congenital cutaneous lesions, using current nomenclature and data acquired by pediatric cutaneous

Description: Neurofibromatosis 1(NF1) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder with an incidence of one birth out of 3000. NF1 gene is located in 17q11.2. The penetrance is near 100% by the age of 8 and the de novo mutations represent half the cases. The product of NF1 gene is neurofibromin, a protein controlling cellular differentiation and proliferation. Phenotypic expression is variable even in the same family. Neurofibromatosis 1 is characterized by café aulait spots, freckling of the folds

Laser eradication of pigmented lesions: a review. Pigmented lesions include solar lentigines, seborrheic keratoses, dermatosis papulosa nigra, ephelides, café-au-laitmacules, nevus spilus, Becker's nevus, postinflammatory hyperpigmentation, melasma, nevocellular nevi, congenital nevi, junctional and compound melanocytic nevi, nevus of Ota and Ito, Hori's nevus, and blue nevi. Advances in laser technology have resulted in the ability to treat pigmented lesions with greater safety

A spinal PN involves two or more levels with connection between the levels or extending laterally along the nerve. In addition to PN, all study subjects must have either positive genetic testing for NF1 or have at least one other diagnostic criterion for NF1 listed below: (NIH Consensus conference): Six or more caf(SqrRoot)(Copyright)-au-laitmacules (greater than or equal to 0.5cm
The SPRED1 Variants Repository for Legius Syndrome Legius syndrome (LS) is an autosomal dominant disorder caused by germline loss-of-function mutations in the sprouty-related, EVH1 domain containing 1 (SPRED1) gene. The phenotype of LS is multiple café aulaitmacules (CALM) with other commonly reported manifestations, including intertriginous freckling, lipomas, macrocephaly, and learning disabilities including ADHD and developmental delays. Since the earliest signs of LS and neurofibromatosis

Common causes of widespread hyperpigmentation include melasma, drugs, cancers, and other systemic disorders. Test patients who have widespread hyperpigmentation not caused by drugs for primary biliary cholangitis, hemochromatosis, and Addison disease.

Café-au-lait lesions are medium-brown (café-au-lait), freckle-like macules, distributed most commonly over the trunk, pelvis, and flexor creases of elbows and knees. Although children who do not have neurofibromatosis may have 2 or 3 café-au-lait lesions, children who have NF1 have ≥ 6 such macules and often many more. These macules are > 5 mm in affected prepubertal children (...) , weakness, or widespread sensory loss in that nerve distribution. Plexiform neurofibromas that compress cranial nerves cause deficits typical of those nerves.

This patient with neurofibromatosis type 1 has multiple café-au-lait spots (rounded hyperpigmented macules) and neurofibromas (raised nodules
Clinical and Mutational Spectrum of Neurofibromatosis Type 1-like Syndrome. Autosomal dominant inactivating sprouty-related EVH1 domain-containing protein 1 (SPRED1) mutations have recently been described in individuals presenting mainly with café aulaitmacules (CALMs), axillary freckling, and macrocephaly. The extent of the clinical spectrum of this new disorder needs further delineation.To determine the frequency, mutational spectrum, and phenotype of neurofibromatosis type 1-like syndrome

Six individuals with biallelic MMR gene mutations have been reported with small bowel adenocarcinoma (mean age 20 years (range: 11-41)). Café-au-lait (CAL) macules were reported in 72% and, based on mutation analysis, consanguinity was suspected in 52% of kindred. Of the 29 kindred, 19 (66%) had PMS2 mutations, 6 (21%) had MSH6 mutations, 3 (10%) had MLH1 mutations, and 1 (3%) had MSH2 mutation.Biallelic MMR
