Abstract

We report two girls, ages 9 and 17 years, with a clinical diagnosis of neurofibromatosis 1 (NF-1) who presented with ill-defined, blanchable, erythematous patches on the dorsal feet and ankles. We hypothesized that these patches were a rare cutaneous finding in NF-1 that exist on a clinical and histopathologic spectrum with previously described NF-1 vascular lesions including blue-red macules and skin ulceration due to NF-1 vasculopathy. We suggest that these lesions be called neurovascular stains (NVSs) to unify their clinical and histopathologic features.
