NF-1 Skin Morgan

Please click to enlarge.

Note what signs you see.

I (W. Wertelecki, M.D.) see multiple skin signs: hypermelanic spots from small to large size and red, cherry-like angiomas called Morgan angioma. There also is a darkly melanic pigmented patch or area as well as fleshy protrusions characteristic of dermal neurofibromas. The multiplicity of these skin anomalies are most compatible with peripheral neurofibromatosis or NF-1.

For further comments see this patient’s gallery.
