Keywords:connective tissue nevus, childhood
Connective tissue nevus (CTN) is a hamartomatous growth which can be associated to multiple syndromes, such as tuberous sclerosis, Buschke-Ollendorf syndrome, or Proteus syndrome. Familial cases of CTN have also been related to cardiac disease. Classically, CTN are characterized by asymptomatic, firm, multiple, skin-colored or yellowish plaques on the trunk or limbs, arising during childhood with no gender preference. A skin biopsy is usually necessary to confirm the diagnosis. Additional studies are oriented by signs or symptoms suggesting an underlying disease.
