NARANJO ALEMAN, Yamila et al. Syndrome of Blue Rubber Bled Nevus. Case presentation. Rev.Med.Electrón. [online]. 2019, vol.41, n.2, pp.522-529. ISSN 1684-1824.

The syndrome of Blue Rubber Bled Nevus is characterized by multiple skin malformations, associated to minor malformations in internal organs (it commonly affects the organs of the digestive system and the central nervous system). It is affirmed that around 1 to 2 millions of individuals are affected by this syndrome worldwide, and it is believed that it has incidence on 1 of each 6000 persons. In newborns the incidence has been calculated in less than 1 case per 100 000 persons/year. The authors presented the case of a female patient, aged 8 years, with antecedents of purplish-blue multiple hemangiomas of different diameters, distributed all over the surface if the body. Several of them are protruding and depressible to the touch. She presented eyelid ptosis and slow movements of the four limbs, epilepsy, and neurodevelopment affectations corresponding to a chronological age of 11 months. She showed an important decrease of the vision. The study showed a slight iron-deficiency anemia, immunoglobulin C3 and C4, blood chemistry at the normal limit. The magnetic resonance imaging showed important signs of cortical atrophy, stronger in the right temporal region. These are entities of scarce presentation and it is the only case with this diagnosis found in the province of Matanzas; that motivated this case presentation.
