    52 words for snow: Dermatologists naming epidermal nevi.
    Br J Dermatol 2017 Sep 28. Epub 2017 Sep 28.
    HealthPartners and Park Nicollet Medical Groups, Department of Dermatology, 401 Phalen Blvd, St Paul, Minnesota, 55130, United States.
    In the April 2017 issue of BJD, Kuentz et al (1) report an FGFR2 mutation in a subtype of nevus sebaceus (NS). On review of the histopathology, we question the clinical diagnosis and feel that these cases may better fit with keratinocytic epidermal nevus (KEN) or remain unclassified "epidermal nevi". Both KEN and NS are papillomatous with epidermal hyperplasia (2), and while the authors note "small foci of sebaceous glands and immature hair follicle buds", they wisely observe that the early gestational age may have limited the full adnexal development and thus, it is possible these may have developed into other clinical subtypes of epidermal nevi.

    Simultaneous Development of Three Different Neoplasms of Trichilemmoma, Desmoplastic Trichilemmoma and Basal Cell Carcinoma Arising from Nevus Sebaceus.
    Arch Craniofac Surg 2017 Mar 25;18(1):46-49. Epub 2017 Mar 25.
    Department of Pathology, Busan-Baik Hospital, Inje University School of Medicine, Busan, Korea.
    Nevus sebaceus is a hamartoma of the sebaceous gland that occurs congenitally, from which various secondary tumors can arise with a prevalence of 5%-6%. Benign neoplasms commonly arise from nevus sebaceous, but they have a very low malignant potential. Two neoplasms may occasionally arise within the same lesion, but it is rare for three or more neoplasms to occur in a nevus sebaceus simultaneously. Read More

While multiple tumors may occasionally arise, it is unusual to develop two different types of tumor, benign and malignant, to arise simultaneously within a single sebaceus nevus. 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 sebaceus: a clinicopathological study of 168 cases and review of the literature.
    Int J Dermatol 2016 Feb 17;55(2):193-200. Epub 2015 Sep 17.
    Department of Dermatology, Razi Hospital, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.
    Background: Nevus sebaceus is a hamartoma composed of abnormal epidermal and dermal components with clinical and histopathological features that change with aging. Prophylactic excision of the lesion was advised historically considering its potential for giving rise to malignant tumors. However, whether early prophylactic excision should be performed has been questioned recently as most of the tumors have been found to be benign in origin. Read More

    A Histological Snapshot of Hypothetical Multistep Progression From Nevus Sebaceus to Invasive Syringocystadenocarcinoma Papilliferum.
    Am J Dermatopathol 2016 Jan;38(1):56-62
    Departments of *Pathology, and †Dermatology, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, AL.
    Syringocystadenocarcinoma papilliferum (SCACP) is an extremely rare adnexal neoplasm, believed to arise in a preexisting nevus sebaceus of Jadassohn (NSJ) through a multistep progression process. This hypothetical process involves an NSJ giving rise to syringocystadenoma papilliferum, which then presumably undergoes malignant transformation in rare circumstances to give rise to SCACP in situ, which finally progresses to an invasive SCACP. Of the 30 SCACP cases reported so far, none have documented the process from a birthmark to the final invasive lesion, with histological evidence of each step, in a single tumor. Read More

    Ceruminous adenoma (ceruminoma) arising in a nevus sebaceus of Jadassohn within the external auditory canal of a 3 year-old boy - A case report.

    Sebaceus and Becker's Nevus: Overview of Their Presentation, Pathogenesis, Associations, and Treatment.
    Am J Clin Dermatol 2015 Jun;16(3):197-204
    Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY, USA.
    Nevus sebaceus (NS) and Becker's nevus (BN) are two variants of epidermal nevi. NS clinically presents as a yellowish-orange, hairless plaque on the scalp, face, or neck, while BN presents as a tan-to-brown hyperpigmented, sometimes hypertrichotic, plaque typically on the chest and shoulder. Histologically, NS displays mature or nearly mature sebaceus glands as well as acanthosis and fibroplasia of the papillary dermis. Read More

    Klinik und Poliklinik für Dermatologie, Venerologie und Allergologie, Universitätsklinikum Würzburg, Josef-Schneider-Straße 2, 97080, Würzburg, Deutschland.
    Unusual congenital or early-onset skin lesions on the scalp often pose a diagnostic challenge particularly as the clinical evaluation may be hampered by dense hair growth. Thus, this paper provides a concise review on developmental abnormalities and nevi with exclusive or predominant scalp localization. Aplasia cutis congenita occurs as an isolated finding, in association with genetic syndromes, nevi and anomalies or as a consequence of intrauterine trauma and teratogens. Read More

    Photoletter to the editor: A neurocutaneous rarity: phacomatosis pigmentokeratotica.
    J Dermatol Case Rep 2014 Jun 30;8(2):58-9. Epub 2014 Jun 30.
    Department of Dermatology, Freiburg University Medical Center, Freiburg, Germany.
    Phacomatosis pigmentokeratotica is characterized by the coexistence of nevus sebaceus, papular nevus spilus and associated neurologic abnormalities. We report a case of phacomatosis pigmentokeratotica in a 28-year-old male who presented with palmar-plantar dysesthesia and ipsilateral brain hemiatrophy. As a characteristic neuroimaging finding of the disorder, we found multiple hypointense lesions involving the ipsilateral hemisphere. Read More

    Update on pediatric dermatologic surgery from tots to teens.
    Curr Opin Pediatr 2014 Aug;26(4):452-9
    Department of Dermatology and Pediatrics, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, Oregon, USA.
    Purpose Of Review: Children and their parents typically present to pediatricians to discuss treatment options for melanocytic nevi, nevus sebaceus, port-wine stains, and hemangiomas. Each of these conditions may be medically managed, but in some situations surgical intervention may be preferable.

    Recent Findings: Although recent studies have improved our understanding of melanoma risk among patients with congenital nevi, prospective trials are needed to more accurately assess whether surgical excision mitigates this risk. Read More
