Abstract

JANKOVIC, Irena et al. A unique case of hereditary bilateral segmental neurofibromatosis on the face. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2012, vol.87, n.6, pp. 895-898. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962012000600012.

Segmental neurofibromatosis is a rare clinical finding generally with no family history and facial involvement. There are four subtypes of segmental neurofibromatosis: true segmental, localized cases with deep involvement, hereditary segmental and bilateral segmental neurofibromatosis. Here we report three patients from the same family (father, son and granddaughter) with segmental bilateral neurofibromatosis on the face. This form hasn't noticed in the literature.

Keywords : Face; Neurofibromatoses; Skin.
