Congenital melanocytic nevi (CMN) are nevi that are present at birth or arise within the first few weeks of life. They are often found on the trunk, head and neck and extremities. We report herein an unusual presentation of a CMN as a cerebriform tumour presenting as secondary cutis verticis gyrata on the scalp of an 18-year-old Filipino male.

BACKGROUND: Pachydermoperiostosis is a rare autosomal recessive genetic disorder characterized by the association of periostosis and pachydermia. To date, two genes involved in prostaglandin metabolism, HPGD and SLCO2A1, have been identified. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A 7-year-old girl presented digital clubbing of the hands and feet, curved nails, hyperhidrosis, and pachydermia, as well as eczema of the trunk and limbs. The diagnosis of pachydermoperiostosis was confirmed by the detection of a homozygous mutation in the HPGD gene...

We report on a rare case of pachydermoperiostosis (PDP) in a 25-year-old male who was admitted to our hospital because of enlargement of fingers and toes. Through examination, we found some typical features on the patient including finger clubbing, periostosis, pachydermia, and cutis verticis gyrata (CVG). But laboratory tests were almost within normal ranges, which ruled out rheumatic arthritis, osteopulmonary arthropathy, thyroid acropathy, and acromegaly. Then, we diagnosed this case as PDP, which was confirmed by gene sequencing...

Cutis Verticis Gyrata-Intellectual Disability (CVG-ID) syndrome is a rare neurocutaneous syndrome characterized by intellectual disability and scalp folds and furrows that are typically absent at birth and are first noticed after puberty. First reported in 1893, the syndrome was mainly identified in subjects living in psychiatric institutions, where it was found to have a prevalence of up to 11.4%. Most patients were reported in the literature during the first half of the 20th century. CVG-ID is now a less reported and possibly under-recognized syndrome...

INTRODUCTION: Cutis verticis gyrata is a rare skin disorder characterized by formation of thick skin folds and grooves. Because of the risk of malignant transformation, these lesions must be surgically excised. In this study, the authors aimed to present a successful reconstruction of scalp with free latissimus dorsi musculocutaneous flap after total excision of giant cerebriform intradermal nevus that causes cutis verticis gyrata. PATIENT REPORT: An 18-year-old male patient attended to our clinic with a large tumor that covers almost 80% of his scalp...

Cutis verticis gyrata (CVG) is a skin condition characterized by excessive growth of the skin of the scalp, resulting in furrows and folds which are similar to the gyri of the brain cortex. CVG can be classified into two forms: primary (essential and non-essential) and secondary. We report the case of a 53-year-old male patient with the primary type of CVG. The patient did not present with any cutaneous complication. His main complaint was the unaesthetic aspect of his scalp related to a psychological inferiority complex...

Cutis verticis gyrata (CVG) is characterized by redundant skin on the scalp that exhibits deep furrows and convolutions. We report a 58-year-old male who presented with multiple raised asymptomatic skin-colored lesions over the chest and abdomen and features of CVG. Biopsy from the lesion confirmed the diagnosis of scleromyxedema. Scleromyxedema presents as diffuse thickening of the skin which underlies the papules. The hypertrophy and folding of the skin produces a gyrate appearance.

Pachydermoperiostosis is a rare genetic disease characterized by finger clubbing, periostosis, cutis verticis gyrata and pachydermia accompanied by acroosteolysis and hyperhidrosis. Recently, two susceptibility genes, HPGD and SLCO2A1, have been identified, whose protein products are involved in the transportation of prostaglandin and metabolism underlying pachydermoperiostosis. Here the genetic basis of pachydermoperiostosis and its correlation with its clinical phenotype are reviewed, which may provide a reference for basic research and clinic diagnosis for the disease...

Pachydermoperiostosis is a rare hereditary disease, which presents with the cutaneous manifestations of pachydermia and cutis verticis gyrata. Histological findings in pachydermia frequently include dermal edema, mucin deposition, elastic fiber degeneration, dermal fibrosis and adnexal hyperplasia. However, the severity of these findings varies between clinical reports, and a systematic multiple-case clinicopathological correlative analysis has not been performed to date. In the present study, we reviewed the skin biopsy specimens obtained from the pachydermia of six pachydermoperiostosis patients...

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. A hairless area with a narrow surrounding rim of hypertrichosis (hair collar sign) may point to occult cranial dysraphism, especially if accompanied by further suggestive signs as port-wine stains, large hemangiomas, dimples, congenital dermoid cysts, and sinuses...

Cutis verticis gyrata (CVG) is a descriptive term for a dermal sign in which deep furrows and convoluted ridges are seen upon the scalp. They are formed due to thickening of the skin folds of the scalp and produce an appearance that resembles the gyri of the brain. The condition is classified primary when the etiology is unknown or neurologically based. CVG will be considered secondary when a definite cause, systemic or localized, is responsible for the sign. We describe a 34 year-old male who was presented with a one-month history of arthralgia in his interphalangeal joints...
