A rare case of segmental neurofibromatosis with multiple blue-red pseudoatrophic plaques

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We report the case of a 5-year-old girl who presented with 2 blue-red atrophic plaques on the left leg as well as subcutaneous nodules that were present since infancy. Although the clinical criteria of neurofibromatosis (NF) were absent, microscopic examination revealed features of a blue-red neurofibroma.
