Abstract

We report on a family of seven affected with a new syndrome of multiple deep schwannomas, multiple nevi (both intradermal and compound types), and multiple leiomyomas of the vagina. Inheritance is dominant, whether autosomal or X-linked cannot be determined at this time. The nevi, which are congenital, appear to be a marker for the syndrome. Both the schwannomas and leiomyomas do not manifest until adulthood.
