Synopsis

Nevus comedonicus is a rare disorder caused by a defect of the pilosebaceous unit. It is characterized by the presence of large comedones arranged in groups or in a linear pattern. Approximately, half the cases are present at birth and the rest appear by 10-15 years of age. The disorder is usually confined to the skin but patients with associated skeletal, CNS, and ocular lesions (such as cataracts) have been described.
