Connective tissue nevi in Child
Connective tissue nevi have been described in association with tuberous sclerosis (shagreen patches are a form) and in a familial cutaneous collagenoma syndrome. Shagreen patches of tuberous sclerosis tend to develop during childhood and are rare at birth.
When found on the plantar surface, the nevi may be part of the Proteus syndrome. They have also been associated with multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN1). Buschke-Ollendorf elastomas are another form of connective tissue hamartoma associated with benign bony lesions. Nevus mucinosis is a form of connective tissue nevi seen with Hunter syndrome.
Acquired collagenoma (athlete's nodules) may occur at sites of sporting injuries, such as the feet, knuckles, or knees.
