Eventually, nevus disappears followed slowly by repigmentation • May occur with blue nevi, Spitz nevi, neurofibromas, melanoma • Typically appear in older childhood on the trunk • A halo nevus may appear in the setting of vitiligo as well • Full skin exam to rule out concurrent melanomaSpeckled Lentiginous Nevus (Nevus Spilus) • Tan brown regularly bordered macule with melanocytic nevi arising with it • Rare melanoma arising in nevus component of SLN • Associations include phakomatosis pigmentovascularis (nevus spilus and nevus flammeus), phakomatosis pigmentokeratotica (nevus spilus and organoid nevus and hemiatrophy, neurologic deficits) • Generalized nevus spilus associated with nevus anemicus and primary lymphedema • 2% of populationBlue Nevus • Melanocytic nevus characterized by dark blue papule • Acquired or congenital melanocytic lesion • 3 types: common blue nevus, cellular blue nevus and combined blue nevus • Multiple epitheloid blue nevi associated with LAMB syndrome (Carney complex)Becker’s Melanosis • Typically large, light brown to tan macules with or without an increased amount of darker hair growing within it • Most common location on the shoulders, upper chest or back of teenaged boys • Usually, unilateral and may be associated with an underlying arrector pili smooth muscle hamartoma “pseudo Darier’s sign” • Increased melanin in epidermis, not increased melanocytesEpidermal Nevi • Hamartomas of epidermal structures • Typically present at birth, but may arise later, even into adulthood • Many of the larger lesions follow the lines of Blaschko • Epidermal nevus syndrome consists of systematized epidermal nevusNevus Sebaceous (of Jadassohn) • Yellowish-orange pebbly plaque with no hair • Usually solitary • Scalp (face and neck) • Occasional mutations in PATCHED gene associated • Commonly gives rise to benign and, very rarely, malignant tumors. Growths usually occur after puberty • Syringocystadenoma papilliferum and trichoblastoma. Basal cell carcinoma, sebaceous epithelioma, hidradenoma, syringoma, metaplastic synovial cysts Pediatric Dermatology  323
  14. 14. Nevus of Ota (Oculodermal melanocytosis/ Nevus fuscoceruleus ophthalmaxillaris) • Deep blue macular pigmentation involving trigeminal nerve (V1, V2) distribution • Most common in the Japanese population and women (5:1) • Underlying mucosa, conjunctiva and tympanic membranes may be pigmented • Color may darken with menses and age • Responds to laser therapy • Rarely, melanoma can arise within nevus of ota (choroid is most common site)Nevus of Ito (Nevus fuscoceruleus acromoidal toideus) • Same as nevus of Ota but in a lateral supraclavicular or lateral brachial nerves distribution • Other conditions with dermal melanocytosis include: Incontentia pigmenti, Naegeli Franceschetti-Jadassohn (keratin 14 mutation, palmar/plantar hypohidrosis, hyperkeratoses, reticular pigmentation, poor dentition, no dermatoglyphics), dermatopathia pigmentosa reticularis (KRT 14 mutation, triad generalized reticulate hyperpigmentation, noncicatricial alopecia, onychodystrophy; adermatoglyphia, PPK, hypo/hyperhidrosis) and macular amyloidosisAcquired Dermal Melanocytoses (Acquired bilateral nevus of Ota-like macules) • Hori nevus • Unresponsive to laser • Late adolescence/adulthoodAngiofibromas • Uniform flesh colored to red papules over nose and cheeks • Multiple lesions associated with tuberous sclerosis, MEN type 1, Cowden, Birt-Hogg-DubeConnective Tissue Nevi • Present at birth or in early childhood • Collagenomas may be autosomal dominant inherited • “Shagreen patch” of tuberous sclerosis is a type of connective tissue nevus (collagenoma) • Eruptive lesions symmetrically distributed over the back beginning in adolescence • Elastomas in Buschke-Ollendorf syndrome (LEMD3 gene) (dermatofibrosis lenticularis disseminata) are symmetric and associated with osteopoikilosisNeurofibromas • Single or multiple in association with neurofibromatosis.9.4 DERMAL TUMORS AND DISORDERSChildhood Fibromatoses Infantile Digital Fibroma • Typically arise during the first year of life • High recurrence rate with surgery, spontaneous regression • Painless nodules that spare the thumb and great toe • Pathognomonic small, round, red perinuclear intracytoplasmic PAS + inclusion bodies in the proliferating fibroblasts on histopathology, thought to be aggragates of actin Fibrous Hamartoma of Infancy • Generally present at birth on the upper trunk and in the genital region • No recurrence after excision324  2011/2012 Dermatology In-Review l Committed to Your Future

Vascular malformations aresubdivided into different types depending on the vessel(s) involved (i.e., capillary, venous, lym-phatic, or arteriovenous).326  2011/2012 Dermatology In-Review l Committed to Your Future

Photosensitivity Disorders Xeroderma Pigmentosum (XP) The genes implicated in XP are involved in the repair of UV induced DNA damage (nucleo-tide excision repair). UV irradiation induces specific types of DNA damage, primarily, cyclobutanepyrimidine dimers (CPDs) and 6–4 photoproducts. These are associated with skin cancer. Thedefects in nucleotide excision repair seen in XP involve all aspects of DNA repair; including recog-nizing damaged DNA (XPA and XPE), unwinding the coiled DNA to allow repair (helicases, XPBand XPD), and repairing the localized damaged DNA (endonucleases, XPF and XPG).
