Abstract

Anemic nevus (AN) is a congenital-vascular anomaly of the skin. Although it is a benign and asymptomatic lesion, it could be a frequent 'cutaneous finding' in neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1). We performed a retrospective analysis to detect the prevalence of AN in all children with a presumptive diagnosis of NF1 treated in our center.
