Abstract

PORTOCARRERO, Larissa Karine Leite et al. Bier’s spots with onset in childhood. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2016, vol.91, n.5, suppl.1, pp.90-91. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/abd1806-4841.20164533.

Bier spots are small, irregular, hypopigmented macules that are usually found on the arms and legs. The macules disappear when the limb is raised. Bier spots have been reported in association with a number of conditions but there is no consistent association to specific desease. Although they usually affect young adults, we report a case of Bier spots that began in childhood. As an asymptomatic and possibly transitional condition, the disease does not require treatment.
