Adult onset of inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus in a mother and her daughter.

Abstract

Inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal nevus (ILVEN) is a rather uncommon dermatosis that typically has an early age of onset, is unilateral, localized, pruritic and relatively refractory to treatment. Atypical presentations of ILVEN have also been described and include late onset in life, widespread involvement and response to treatment. We report the adult onset of an extremely pruritic systemized eruption in both mother and her daughter that clinically and histologically was most compatible with ILVEN. The eruptions were also partially responsive to therapy.
