Mutation and expression of ABCA12 in keratosis pilaris and nevus comedonicus.

Mol Med Rep 2018 Sep 31;18(3):3153-3158. Epub 2018 Jul 31.

Department of Dermatology, Nanfang Hospital, Southern Medical University, Guangzhou, Guangdong 510515, P.R. China.

Keratosis pilaris (KP) and nevus comedonicus (NC) are congenital keratinized dermatoses; however, the exact etiology of these two diseases is unclear. The objective of the present study was to identify the disease‑causing genes and their association with functional alterations in the development of KP and NC. Peripheral blood samples of one KP family, two NC families and 100 unrelated healthy controls were collected. Read More

Extensive Nevus Comedonicus, Complicated with Recurrent Abscesses, Successfully Treated with Surgical Resurfacing.

J Cutan Aesthet Surg 2018 Jan-Mar;11(1):33-37

Department of Plastic Surgery, St Johns' Medical College and Hospital, Bengaluru, Karnataka, India.

Nevus comedonicus is a rare epidermal abnormality of the pilosebaceous unit, which is congenital in most patients but may also appear early in childhood. It may be localized or have an extensive involvement, the latter showing a unilateral predominance with only a few cases presenting bilaterally. Extensive nevus comedonicus can be associated with musculoskeletal defects, eye and neurological involvement, which constitutes nevus comedonicus syndrome. Read More

Pediatr Dermatol 2018 Jan 16;35(1):21-29. Epub 2017 Oct 16.

Department of Dermatology, University of California, San Francisco, Santa Rosa, CA, USA.

Knowledge of the molecular underpinnings of many epidermal nevi and epidermal nevus syndrome has expanded rapidly in recent years. In this review and update on epidermal nevus syndrome, we will cover recent genetic discoveries involving epidermal nevi, including nevus sebaceus, keratinocytic epidermal nevus, nevus comedonicus, congenital hemidysplasia with ichthyosiform nevus and limb defects syndrome, phakomatosis pigmentokeratotica, Becker's nevus, porokeratotic adnexal ostial nevus, inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevi, and cutaneous-skeletal hypophosphatemia syndrome. We will discuss how newly defined mutations relate to the biology reflected in the cutaneous patterns seen in these mosaic disorders and how new molecular data has informed our understanding of these diseases and shaped management decisions.

An Bras Dermatol 2016 Sep-Oct;91(5 suppl 1):166-168

Universidade Federal de São Paulo (UNIFESP) - São Paulo (SP), Brazil.

Verrucous epidermal nevi are hamartomatous lesions of the epidermis that, unlike other epidermal nevi (such as sebaceous nevus or nevus comedonicus), are rarely associated with malignant neoplasms. The majority of squamous cell carcinoma develop in linear or multiple epidermal nevus and rarely in solitary epidermal nevus. In general, the prognosis is favorable. Read More

Epidermal nevus syndromes.

Handb Clin Neurol 2015 ;132:291-316

Departments of Dermatology and Community and Family Medicine, University of California San Francisco, Santa Rosa, CA, USA. Electronic address:

The term epidermal nevus syndrome (ENS) has been used to describe the association of epidermal hamartomas and extracutaneous abnormalities. Although many continue to use the term "ENS," it is now understood that this is not one disease, but rather a heterogeneous group with distinct genetic profiles defined by a common cutaneous phenotype: the presence of epidermal and adnexal hamartomas that are associated with other organ system involvement. One commonality is that epidermal nevi often follow the lines of Blaschko and it appears the more widespread the cutaneous manifestations, the greater the risk for extracutaneous manifestations.

Nevus comedonicus in oral-facial-digital syndrome type 1: a new finding or overlapping syndromes?

Pediatr Dermatol 2014 Mar-Apr;31(2):e48-51. Epub 2014 Feb 11.

University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, Dallas, Texas.

We report a patient with oral-facial-digital syndrome type 1 (OFDS1) who exhibited features overlapping those of nevus comedonicus syndrome, an unusual presentation that may potentially represent a new variant of OFDS1. OFDS1 and nevus comedonicus syndrome represent two rare syndromes with numerous overlapping features that have yet to be described in relation to one another. The features present in our patient led us to propose the possibility of a new variant of OFDS1 in which nevus comedonicus represents a cutaneous manifestation of the syndrome. Read More

Fatal metastatic cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma evolving from a localized verrucous epidermal nevus.

Case Rep Dermatol 2013 5;5(3):272-82. Epub 2013 Oct 5.

Rumailah Hospital, Doha, Qatar.

A malignant transformation is known to occur in many nevi such as a sebaceous nevus or a basal cell nevus, but a verrucous epidermal nevus has only rarely been associated with neoplastic changes. Keratoacanthoma, multifocal papillary apocrine adenoma, multiple malignant eccrine poroma, basal cell carcinoma and cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (CSCC) have all been reported to develop from a verrucous epidermal nevus. CSCC has also been reported to arise from other nevoid lesions like a nevus comedonicus, porokeratosis, a sebaceous nevus, an oral sponge nevus and an ichthyosiform nevus with CHILD syndrome.

Acneiform eruptions.

Clin Dermatol 2014 Jan-Feb;32(1):24-34

Department of Dermatology, Andreas Syggros Hospital, University of Athens, Athens, Greece. Electronic address:

Is it acne or is it not? When this question arises, we can presume that we have crossed the boundaries of "acneiform eruptions" of the face. Although acne may be considered a condition fairly easy to diagnose, it is not rare for the practicing dermatologist or the general physician to wonder when faced with an acneiform eruption before establishing a diagnosis. In this review, we address facial acneiform eruptions in children and in adults, including perioral dermatitis, granulomatous periorificial dermatitis, nevus comedonicus, acne cosmetica, rosacea, demodicosis, folliculitis, acneiform presentation of cutaneous lymphomas, and drug-induced [epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitors, steroids, etc. Read More

Nevus comedonicus is an uncommon skin abnormality characterized by an aggregation of dilated follicular orifices filled with keratinous material. Nevus comedonicus is occasionally complicated with other conditions including cataracts, skeletal defects, central nervous system abnormalities or other extra-cutaneous diseases (nevus comedonicus syndrome). Although most cases of nevus comedonicus occur unilaterally on the face, neck and chest, the lesions occasionally show a bilateral distribution (bilateral nevus comedonicus). Read More
