Skin Angiomas – Melanic Nevi

Please click to enlarge.

Note what signs you see.

I (W. Wertelecki, M.D.) see a classic example of polymorphism associated with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1). Illustrated is a combination (or concurrence) of multiple small freckle-like pigmented spots, a large hyperpigmented area on the upper edge of the illustration, darkly pigmented melanic nevi, and multiple “cherry” or Morgan angiomas. To appreciate these nuances, please enlarge the image.

PERSPECTIVE: NF1 is an autosomal dominant mutation expressed as signs of diverse dysplasias, some of which may mutate into neopasias. A detailed description of NF1 associated with Morgan angiomas underscore other  concurrent vascular anomalies. Continued in a NF1 gallery.
