Buschke ollendorff syndrome

Zachary J Wolner, Tracey N Liebman, Eve J Lowenstein
Elastomas are connective tissue nevi or hamartomas. They may occur in isolation or can be associated with familial syndromes such as Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome. Elastomas typically present in childhood as small ivory papules or firm skin-colored nodules that can coalesce into larger yellow plaques. These lesions are typically distributed over the extremities, abdomen, and back. Herein, we report an unusual case of a renal transplant recipient who presented with an acquired subungual papule with associated koilonychia and distal nail plate dystrophy...

We report the case of a 6-year-old Caucasian girl with clinical and histopathologic features of Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome. Histologic examination of skin lesions showed thick, curly, elastic fibers in the derma. Bone lesions compatible with Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome were found in the girl's mother. Mutations in LEMD3 are pathogenic for Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome. Analysis of all exons and exon-intron junctions of LEMD3 did not reveal any germline mutations.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Melorheostosis is a rare sclerosing bone dysplasia that affects both cortical bone and adjacent soft tissue structures in a sclerotomal distribution. In this review, we describe the natural history, radiological features, proposed pathogenesis, and management options for this debilitating condition. RECENT FINDINGS: Since its first description in 1922, about 400 cases of melorheostosis have been reported, either as single reports or in small case series...

Elastoma is a connective tissue nevus characterized by changes in elastic fibers. It can be congenital or acquired, and is usually diagnosed before puberty. Associated with osteopoikilosis, it is known as Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome. Histopathology with specific staining for elastic fibers is critical for a diagnostic conclusion. This report describes the case of a 7-year-old male patient with lesions diagnosed as elastoma, with absence of bone changes in the radiological imaging. This study aims to report the clinical presentation and histological examination of such unusual disease...

BACKGROUND: We describe a male with functionally impairing radial deviation of the thumb who presented to us at 24 years of age. Two sclerotic skin lesions had been excised 7 years before because of consecutive skin contracture. Latest radiological examination showed a spotted pattern consistent with osteopoikilosis. CASE PRESENTATION: A corrective osteotomy of the thumb was carried out due to the patients discomfort. Facing the simultaneous osteo-cutaneous malformation we postulated a Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome...

Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome (BOS) is a rare, often benign, autosomal skin disorder. BOS commonly presents with nontender connective tissue naevi and sclerotic bony lesions (osteopoikilosis [OPK]). Herein, we summarize the presenting features of BOS and potential associations by conducting a systematic review of the literature and summarizing a cohort seen at the Hospital for Sick Children (HSC), Toronto, Canada. PubMed was searched using the following terms: 'BOS'; 'dermatofibrosis lenticularis'; 'OPK'; 'LEMD3'; 'elastoma'; 'collagenoma'...

Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant disorder caused by loss of function in LEMD3, resulting in connective tissue nevi and varying bone dysplasia. Although typically benign, we describe a novel LEMD3 splice site mutation (IVS12 + 1delG) in a 13-year-old boy with Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome presenting with severe skeletal deformities, polyostotic melorheostosis, and osteopoikilosis.

Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome is a rare condition characterized by skin manifestations and osteopoikilosis. We describe a mother and her son who presented with indurated skin lesions suggestive of connective tissue naevi. X-rays showed multiple symmetrical foci of osteosclerosis. They had both been diagnosed earlier with Calvé-Legg-Perthes disease, which on revision most likely represented Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome. Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome may imitate Calvé-Legg-Perthes disease. Skin signs may be the clue to diagnosis...

Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome (BOS) is an autosomal-dominant disease characterized by the association of connective tissue nevi and osteopoikilosis. It is diagnosed by mutations of proteins involved in bone and connective tissue morphogenesis. We report 2 cases of BOS with different cutaneous clinical patterns. These cases emphasize the importance of heightened suspicion of BOS in selected cases. Identifying BOS can be reassuring for the patient, sparing futile and expensive investigations.

Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome represents an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by connective tissue nevi and osteopoikilosis. Cutaneous lesions may contain either predominantly elastic fibers or predominantly collagen fibers or may show both connective tissue components. The disease results from mutations in LEMD3 (MAN1), which lead to enhanced transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) signaling and resultant changes in fibroblast function. TGF-β alterations have been implicated in a number of fibrotic disorders, and it is therefore not surprising that a range of cutaneous and skeletal abnormalities have been associated with Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome...

A 44-year-old HIV-infected male, having a low CD4 count, was on antiretroviral therapy for the last 2 months, when he developed a skin rash. He gave a history of solitary unprotected extramarital sexual contact 6 months before onset of the rash. Dermatological examination revealed a bilaterally symmetrical, maculopapular erythematous rash involving the palms, forearms, and neck. He showed a positive sign of Buschke-Ollendorff. In the meanwhile, the CD4 count had improved to 196 cells/mm(3) from the previous count of 92 cells/mm(3) and the viral load had decreased...

BACKGROUND: Connective tissue nevi (CTN) are circumscribed hamartomas of the skin in which there is an abnormal mixture of normal components of the dermis that may be sporadic or associated with syndromes such as Buschke-Ollendorff, tuberous sclerosis, and Proteus. OBJECTIVE: We sought to specify the clinical and histologic features of CTN in childhood and to propose a diagnostic approach and updated classification. METHODS: This was a retrospective study in a tertiary pediatric outpatient population, accessing clinical and histopathological records...

A 3-year-old boy presented with asymptomatic elastomas on the posterior trunk. Radiographic studies revealed osteopoikilosis, confirming the diagnosis of Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome. The patient had a history of bilateral simple cutaneous syndactyly, which has not been previously reported with this condition. Buschke-Ollendorff syndrome is a rare autosomal-dominant disorder characterized by connective tissue nevi and osteopoikilosis. Several associated systemic abnormalities have been reported, but morbidity and mortality are generally not affected...
