Abstract

The association of nevus flammeus with mongolian spot, nevus fuscoceruleus, nevus spilus and, with variable frequency, with nevus anemicus has been termed phacomatosis pigmentovascularis, a genodermatosis first described by Ota and co-workers. Four different combinations have been specified. Most cases are reported from the Japanese literature. Phacomatosis pigmentovascularis may constitute an exclusively cutaneous disorder, but overlapping with other syndromes like Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome or Sturge-Weber syndrome is also possible. We report a 30-year-old woman with nevus flammeus on the back and right arm associated with nevus fuscoceruleus on the back.
