BALLALAI, Priscilla Luppi et al. Organoid nevus syndrome: case report. Arq. Bras. Oftalmol. [online]. 2001, vol.64, n.4, pp.355-357. ISSN 1678-2925.

The authors present a case of a child with organoid nevus syndrome, characterized by epibulbar choristoma in the right eye, Jadassohn's nevus sebaceous in the scalp and arachnoid cist. The pathology of the ocular lesion revealed a mixture of ectodermal and mesodermal elements, leding to the rare diagnosis of epibulbar complex choristoma.The syndrome is rarely described in the ophthalmologic literature. Some considerations are made regarding ophthalmologic and systemic associations.
