Multiple lentigines syndrome. Case report and review of the literature.


The multiple lentigines syndrome is reviewed and a new case is presented. The major features of this syndrome are lentigines and other cutaneous abnormalities, cardiac defects, meurologic defects, cephalofacila dysmorphism, shortness of stature, skeletal anomalies, genitourinary abnormalities, and a family history consistent with an autosomal dominant mode of inheritance. The multiple lentigines syndrome manifests markedly variable expressivity; no single finding is pathognomonic and few patients have all major features. We propose specific criteria for diagnosis.
