Abstract

Abstract The case of a patient with a huge, hairy thoracic nevus associated with a brain tumor is presented. The nevus was 30 x 35 cm and was located on the patient's back; there were also two café au lait spots on one of her legs and a pilocytic astrocytoma of the left basal ganglia. The etiological background of this case is discussed in its relation to phakomatoses.
