Nevoxanthoendothelioma. Presented by Dr. Charles F. Post.
The patient is a 14-month-old white girl who was delivered of a normal childbirth and uneventual postpartum period. Eight months ago, an eruption which consisted of small yellowish raised discrete lesions appeared on the face, arms, legs, and chest. The eruption was apparently asymptomatic and has persisted without any subjective symptoms until this time. There has been no appreciable change in the character of the lesions.
Examination reveals papular lesions 1 to 3 mm. in diameter, scattered over the face, forearms, and legs. The color of the lesions is predominantly yellow, but some appear to be somewhat red and others tan. The lesions are more numerous on the cheeks and forearms. The back and buttocks are spared.A complete physical examination is otherwise negative except for the presence of small shotty postauricular and submandibular lymph nodes.
