Abstract

STEINER, Denise et al. Do you know this syndrome?. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2011, vol.86, n.1, pp. 165-166. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962011000100032.

Becker nevus syndrome is the association of Becker's nevus with breast hypoplasia and other ipsilateral bone or muscle changes. It is considered to be a hormone-dependent disorder caused by a disturbance in the activity of the androgen receptor that appears to be increased in Becker's nevus, which may influence the development of associated lesions. We present a relevant case of this syndrome due to the rare systematization of the lesions in addition to the exuberant extracutaneous involvement in this case.

Keywords : Hamartoma; Nevus; Receptors, Androgen.
